Arsenal Closing In On €8m Signing Of France U20 Prospect

Guendouzi who has played for France’s youth sides is close to joining Arsenal after they agreed a fee with Lorient

Arsenal are reported to have reached an agreement to sign young French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi from Lorient during the ongoing transfer window.

New boss Unai Emery has been in the market for midfield reinforcements this summer after losing Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla and we're reportedly on the verge of signing Sampdoria star Lucas Torriera while speculation suggests Arsenal chiefs are also in talks with Sevilla over Steven N'Zonzi.

Guendouzi has reportedly agreed terms with the north London club and will put pen-to-paper on a five-year deal.

The Gunners are understood to have agreed a £7million fee with Guendouzi's Ligue 2 club Lorient.

Vettel wins British GP as Hamilton recovers to finish second
The front-runners all stopped for fresh rubber, promoting Hamilton to third. "You are the fastest by miles, so don't give up". While Vettel led from Bottas at the front all eyes were on Hamilton and his comeback drive through the field.

The youngster started out in Paris Saint-Germain's academy before being snapped up by Lorient in 2014.

The likes of Manchester City and Tottenham have been credited with interest in Guendouzi, but Arsenal have moved quickly to beat their rivals to the midfielder.

He fell out with Lorient last season, initially after a dressing room fall out, before "personal problems" saw him lose his place in the side a second time.
