Arsenal chief Mislintat: Signing Guendouzi so important for new management team

Arsenal transfers chief Sven Mislintat has explained the reasons for bringing Matteo Guendouzi to London.

The midfielder has been a revelation since arriving in the summer from L2 Lorient.

Mislintat recalled to Die Ziet: "I saw Guendouzi play in Lorient when the team was still in Ligue 1.

"Guendouzi drew attention for his long hair and his personality.

"For us, the transfer of an 18 year old was an important signal to show the world that: We are Arsenal again, and we give young people a real chance."
