Arsenal are reportedly set to offer defensive midfielder Matteo Guendouzi a new 5-year contract which will see him earn £70,000-a-week.
Guendouzi joined Arsenal from Ligue 2 club Lorient last summer and has become a key player under Unai Emery. The 20-year-old Frenchman has made 50 appearances for the Gunners, scoring a goal against Qarabag in the Europa League and providing two assists against Brentford and Blackpool in the EFL Cup. The defensive midfielder started both of Arsenal’s Premier League matches this season.
Guendouzi has established himself as one of the Gunners’ key entities and the club is eager to keep him for as long as possible. According to the Daily Mail, the Frenchman who currently earns £40000-a-week will be offered a new 5-year contract that would see his weekly salary rise to £70000.
