Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is reportedly being lined up for a new contract – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have reacted with delighted to the speculation.
The Daily Mail reports that the North London club want to extend the midfielder’s stay at the Emirates Stadium and could offer him a fresh five-year deal.
It is understood that he could see his existing £40,000-a-week contract upgrade to £70,000-a-week due to his rapid improvement.
Unai Emery signed the France Under-21 international last summer for £7.2million and he’s turned out to be a real bargain.
Guendouzi played 48 times across all competitions last season during his debut year with Arsenal and settled extremely quickly.
The 20-year-old is a defensive midfielder that sits in front of the backline to break up play and has plenty of energy.
A selection of Arsenal supporters on social media have responded to the Guendouzi reports by stating he deserves a new deal.
He’s started both two league fixtures so far this campaign to highlight his importance under Emery and he should only continue going from strength to strength.
With so many creative attacking players at the disposal of the Gunners, it’s vital they have some solid defensive midfielders protecting.
Here are some Arsenal fans on Guendouzi:
Seems a fair price. Forget his age he’s a regular 1st team player.

The fact club is now immediately offering contract extensions to players they are intent on keeping shows progress. So long as contracts aren’t handed out recklessly
