In more news that’s unlikely to please Gunners supporters, both Juventus and Man United have expressed an interest in signing one of Arsenal’s current first-team stars.
Moreover, London giants appear happy to allow Matteo Guendouzi to depart if they were to receive an offer in the region of €40m.
France international has asked to leave the club, with the board unhappy at the player’s attitude, particularly in light of the incident with Neal Maupay in Arsenal’s weekend defeat at Brighton.
The lack of game time under Mikel Arteta four starts in 12 matches, markedly different to when he played under Unai Emery is behind the midfielder’s request for a move.
Although it’s not clear if the club would be happy to keep him, as he is under contract until 2022, they’re not under pressure to sell him this summer.
Clearly, however, Guendouzi needs to mature quickly if he wants to resurrect his career, whether that be at Emirates or elsewhere.
Red Devils interest comes as something of a surprise considering Matteo’s struggles at Emirates, but Man United could do with bolstering in defensive midfield.
The French midfielder could well improve at a different club and might be the perfect long-term replacement for Nemanja Matic at Theatre of Dreams.
