Midfielder Matteo Guendouzi has joined Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin on a season-long loan. The France Under-21 international has made 82 appearances for us since joining from French side Lorient in summer 2018. Matteo started his career at Paris Saint-Germain’s academy before joining Lorient. He went straight into our first-team squad when he joined us, with only three players making more appearances than Matteo in his debut season of 2018/19. Everyone at Arsenal wishes Matteo well for the season.
