Pictures: 19-year-old spotted with Lacazette ahead of Bournemouth clash


As arsenal face in form Bournemouth on Sunday, they hope to bounce back from three consecutive Premier League draws.

The Gunners have reportedly included 19-year-old Matteo Guendouzi in their training regimen as they pay visit to Bournemouth.

The Croat who served domestic suspension has returned to an Arsenal side in a 16 game unbeaten run in all competition following their lacklustre start to the season against City and Chelsea.

Guendouzi has earned praises for his calmness and technical ability on the pitch considering he is still only 19. He seem to have however lost his place to Lucas Torreira who joined from Sampdoria and has created a strong partnership with Xhaka in the defensive midfield.


The Gunners are hopeful of returning to the Champions League, a competition they have been absent from in the past two seasons after enduring a slump under Arsene Winger.

Their performances despite a new coach and a new philosophy of play have immensely improved and positive reviews have been passed on the coach Unai Emery.
