One of the big surprises of the season so far, Matteo Guendouzi has already managed to find his way into the heart of Arsenal fans with his determination to win and his David Luiz haircut.
Left on the bench for the past two games after starting the first five matches of the season under Unai Emery, the 19-year-old will probably get used sporadically now that everyone is back in midfield, but he’s already shown why the Gunners bought him in the first place.
In fact, he’s impressed so much that Téléfoot are reporting that Didier Deschamps is considering him for the next France squad for the upcoming international break, as the world champions get ready to face Iceland in a friendly and Germany in the Nations League.
Needing to fill a gap in the squad following Corentin Tolisso’s injury, the favourite for the role is said to be Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele, but even being mentioned in the list of potential replacements will be huge boost for the Arsenal starlet.
Despite Morocco’s recent attempts to convince the Arsenal starlet to play for them instead of his country of birth, Guendouzi appears set on playing for Les Bleus, recently revealing it was a dream of his to do so.
At the rate he’s going, it might just be around the corner.
Didier Deschamps will reveal his squad on October 4th.
