Matteo Guendouzi has admitted that “everything” has changed for him following his transfer to Arsenal in the summer window.

The 19-year-old has been settling well into life at The Emirates after having moved to the north London club from Ligue 2 side Lorient in the summer transfer window.

Despite the expectation that the teenager would need some time to settling in at The Emirates, Guendouzi has started all four of Arsenal’s Premier League games under new manager Unai Emery so far this season.

The teenager has been impressive with his mature performances under Emery and Guendouzi will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first team for the rest of the campaign.

And Guendouzi has conceded that it has been a dramatic change for him at Arsenal following his transfer in the summer.

Speaking in an interview quoted by the Daily Express, Guendouzi said: “It’s another world.

“Arsenal is a historic club, beautiful, world famous, one of the best in Europe with big stars in the team.

“It’s hard to tell but it’s really another dimension. Everything changed.

“At the game level, it’s much more intense. In this English championship, there are great players from everywhere, it’s impressive.

“But I did it fast enough, it’s the most important. It’s up to me to stay regular. This is just the beginning.”

Arsenal will return to Premier League action after the international break when the Gunners take on Newcastle United away from home on Saturday.

The north London side finished in sixth place and without a trophy last season in Arsene Wenger’s final campaign in charge at the club.
