Unai Emery’s summer signings have had mixed success so far this season, with some – like Bernd Leno – still yet to make a sufficient impact in the Premier League.
However, one player whose impact undoubtedly cannot be questioned is young Matteo Guendouzi. The young Frenchman came in as an unknown quantity, and most Arsenal fans were likely expecting him to make little if any impact over the first few months of the season.
Despite that, though, he’s offered Arsenal a fresh outlook through the midfield, displaying brilliant quality both on the ball and off of it. Despite being surrounded by players that are often several years his senior, the 19-year-old has taken to the team like a fish to water.
Now, he’s arguably one of Emery’s most trusted players. Arsenal have been discussing his rise on their official Twitter page, sharing a post detailing his rise from Paris to Arsenal.
“This is my dream but it’s only the start. I hope to have a great career here.”@MatteoGuendouzi has some story

Naturally, fans have been quick to respond to this online, and it’s fair to say that Guendouzi is a very popular man among fans. Touted as everything from a ‘legend in the making’ to Arsenal’s new midfield captain, he’s a popular man.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
May I say he is the new Captain of Arsenal's midfield
