Matteo Guendouzi has revealed his pride at being nominated for the annual Golden Boy award.
The France international is on a 20-player shortlist for the prize, which celebrates Europe's best young players under the age of 21.
Speaking about the award, Matteo revealed his pride and also the admiration he has for the competition.
"It shows that I've been working hard at Arsenal and have also done well at international level," Guendouzi told Arsenal Player.
"I think it's a reward for all the hard work that I've done at the club and the good displays I've produced, but it also reflects my progress in training and how much I've come on as a player here.
"It's a reward for all my hard work and I'm hugely proud to be part of the 20 players under the age of 21 who've been nominated for the Golden Boy award – it's fantastic.
"There are some super players [nominated]. We know there are players like [Matthijs] De Ligt, the Juve defender, and Joao Felix, the Atletico forward.
"There are fantastic players everywhere and it's a wonderful award for whoever ends up winning it."
