Matteo Guendouzi on 'big Arsenal adventure': I'm here to play

Arsenal signing Matteo Guendouzi is determined to fight for a first team place this season.

The 19-year-old midfielder only joined the Gunners from FC Lorient this summer, but already looks to have settled in at the club.

"Yes I hope to play, that's true but this is a big squad, with a lot of great players with a lot of experience," he told AFP.

"It's a question of working, working, working, and afterwards the coach will make his choices.

"But I hope to play a few games. It's a great environment to work in, we're working really well in training and we're playing well in the matches.

"But it's only the start. Hopefully this will be a big adventure with Arsenal.

"These are only friendly matches so I need to keep working - that's the most important thing for the future I hope to have at Arsenal."
