Arsenal are ready to start contract talks with Matteo Guendouzi, according to reports.
The Frenchman has established himself as a key member of Mikel Arteta’s squad and the Gunners are said to be keen to tie him down.
The 20-year-old has made 77 appearances for Arsenal since his 2018 move from Lorient.
And the North Londoners are ready to give him a pay-rise from the £40,000-a-week he currently earns, according to football.london.
But the negotiations will reportedly not take place until the summer at which stage Guendouzi will have just two years left on his contract.
