Arsenal signed some big players over the summer, and many of them have performed well. Bernd Leno, for example, had a big task in replacing Petr Cech, but he’s had a decent first half of the season. Lucas Torreira, meanwhile, has added some extra aggression to the Arsenal midfield, and that’s an issue that Arsene Wenger was plagued with for years.
However, perhaps Arsenal’s best summer arrival has been a player that nobody expected much from at all. Matteo Guendouzi moved to the Emirates over the summer from Lorient, and as a teenager with little experience, most likely would have expected a loan move away for him.
This didn’t happen, though, and Unai Emery has since regularly opted to use him in the league – and to brilliant effect. Guendouzi, despite being just 19-years-old, has really settled in well at Arsenal, and he’s arguably been one of the Premier League’s best summer signings.
Offering brilliant technique, passing and energy, he’s really added a touch of class to the Arsenal midfield – and fans online are loving it. A handful of Arsenal fans have taken to Reddit to discuss the midfielder in light of his performance against Cardiff City, and they’ve all been very impressed.
