Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi wants to fulfil his international dream with France despite overtures from Morocco.
The 19-year-old has caught the eye with some all-action displays for Unai Emery's side since joining from Lorient during the close season.
Guendouzi has represented France at every age-group level from Under-18 upwards and made his first appearances for the Under-21 side against Croatia and Spain over the past week.
His Moroccan heritage means Guendouzi's international options remain open until he plays a competitive game for Les Bleus.
Speaking after Monday's 1-1 draw against Spain, he told Canal+ that representing the country of his birth remains a huge motivation.
"Since I was young, I've always played with the French teams, it's a dream to play with France A," he said.
"And I'm hoping to get there, it's a dream for me. to make it happen."
