Addji Keaninkin Marc-Israel Guéhi was born on 13 July 2000 (age 23 years) in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. He is the son of Ivorian parents and moved with his family to London, England, at one year of age. His father was a minister of a local church, meaning his childhood often focused on religion and education over football.
Marc Guéhi began playing in the Cray Wanderers youth system at age six and was coached by a scout from Premier League club Chelsea. After two years with the non-League club, he signed for Chelsea and progressed through the academy. Progressing through the youth ranks, Guéhi regularly featured for the under-18s during their treble-winning campaign in 2017.

After being named as an unused substitute on two occasions, Guéhi made his debut in a 2–0 defeat to Stoke City on 25 January. He remained in the starting XI for the next four games but came under criticism after Swansea failed to win any of their last five games. Cooper backed the defender and stated, “it’s difficult for young players to make an instant impact”.
Following a three-month pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Guéhi was named on the bench twice before returning as a late substitute in a 1–1 draw against Millwall. On 5 July, he made his first start in five months in a 2–1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

He featured in both legs of the semi-final as Swansea lost 3–2 on aggregate to Brentford.
On 26 August 2020, Guéhi returned to Swansea on loan for the 2020–21 season. He became an ever-present figure in defence with only four Swansea players appearing for more minutes throughout the campaign. Guéhi began the season with three consecutive clean sheets against Preston North End, Birmingham City and Wycombe Wanderers, and went on to keep a further 14 in the league as Swansea finished fourth. He played every minute of their play-off campaign, beating Barnsley 2–1 across the semi-finals before a 2–0 final defeat to Brentford.
