French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi became our fifth signing of a busy summer when he joined the club from Lorient on Wednesday.
The 19-year-old spoke to Arsenal Media about his "immense pride" at becoming a Gunner, and you can watch the video above.
Here is a transcript of what he said:
Matteo, congratulations. How does it feel to join Arsenal?
It’s something I’m immensely proud of. Arsenal have always been the team closest to my heart and a side I’ve wanted to join since I was a child. It gives me great pride – it’s incredible. I hope I can do great things here. It doesn’t get any better than coming to a club like this, with so much history, like Arsenal. I’m hugely proud.
Finally, what are you hoping to achieve during your time here?
My hope is to become a top player here at Arsenal. A lot of great players have played here. I want to become part of the club’s history and to achieve great things here. I want to win titles, titles, titles. I want to establish myself here, which would be amazing. Winning silverware, as I said, is very important to me and winning things here at Arsenal would be incredible.
