Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi has been named on the 40-man shortlist for this year’s Golden Boy Award.

The 19-year-old has had a phenomenal year for Arsenal and was recently called up to the French national team by manager Didier Deschamps though he’s yet to make his debut.

Juventus defender Matthijs De Ligt won the award last year and he leads 39 others for the 2019 Golden Boy Award.

The Dutchman is the first defender to win the award.
