[Video] Leaked Video Confirms Another Signing As Arsenal Complete £32m Double Swoop

By on July 10, 2018

The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Matteo Guendouzi has joined Arsenal…

A leaked video has seemingly confirmed that Arsenal have completed the signing of Lorient midfielder Matteo Guendouzi in a reported £7m deal.

Guendouzi recently emerged as a shock transfer target with the Mirror reporting over the weekend that Arsenal had agreed a £7m deal with Lorient to sign the young midfielder.

BBC journalist David Ornstein then confirmed on Twitter on Monday that Guendouzi was due to undergo his medical in north London after flying-in from France to complete the surprise transfer ahead of signing a five-year contract.

There has been no official confirmation from the club [at the time of writing] but it seems the deal has now been completed as a video has emerged on social media showing Guendouzi signing his contract.

In the video, the 19-year-old is seen smiling alongside Arsenal head of recruitment Sven Mislintat and contract negotiator Huss Fahmy as he pens his deal at the Arsenal training ground offices.

Here is the video doing the rounds on Twitter:

Guendouzi emerged as a box-to-box midfielder at Lorient but excelled in a deeper role last season and he’s already represented France at Under-20 level so he has a huge future ahead of him.

The deal is clearly done but Arsenal probably wanted to wait until Wednesday to make the official announcement as Tuesday was all about the arrival of Lucas Torreira from Sampdoria.

Arsenal confirmed this afternoon that the Uruguayan international has joined the club on a long-term contract with the Daily Mail claiming we’ve paid Sampdoria £25m for his signature.
