Young midfielder Matteo Guendouzi has dropped a strong hint he’s on his way to Arsenal to complete a transfer following links with the Gunners.
BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein tweeted earlier today that the north London giants were looking set to sign Guendouzi as he comes to London for a medical today, along with Lucas Torreira.
Two medicals taking place at Arsenal today – 22-year-old Uruguay midfielder Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria and 19-year-old France Under-20 midfielder Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient. Torreira key signing for immediate term, Guendouzi high-potential prospect for future #AFC #URU #FRA

The French teenager looks an exciting talent, and should be a fine long-term signing if he fulfils his potential at the Emirates Stadium.
For now, Guendouzi seems to be enjoying the chance to tease Gooners about his movements as he posted an Instagram live message with a photo of his suitcase as he heads to London.
It seems pretty clear what the 19-year-old midfielder seems to be hinting at, and it probably won’t be too long now before the deal can be officially announced.
While Guendouzi might not go into the first-team straight away, Arsenal look to be doing well to build for the future if they do pull this signing off.
