DONE DEAL? Matteo Guendouzi pens Arsenal deal in front of club cameras

Arsenal have completed the signing of FC Lorient youngster Matteo Guendouzi.

The Mirror says Guendouzi has signed a five-year contract.

Video footage of Guendouzi signing his deal has emerged, with the 19-year-old sitting next to Arsenal head of recruitment Sven Mislintat and contract negotiator Huss Fahmy.

It was Mislintat who identified Guendouzi as a possible target, but according to reports in France it was head coach Unai Emery who persuaded the youngster to leave his homeland and move to the Emirates.

His arrival follows on from the capture of Lucas Torreira, whose £26.5 million switch was finalised on Tuesday.
