Arsenal have just one player vying for UEFA Nations League title this week

Arsenal have just one player from the four teams all hoping to lift the 2021 UEFA Nations League title in Matteo Guendouzi.

The Frenchman is currently on loan with Marseille in Ligue 1, where he is enjoying a first-team role with the club. His spell has clearly caught the eye of international boss Didier Deschamps, who could well make his senior debut at the finals of this competition. The full squad can be found here on UEFA’s official website.

Guendouzi has been an unused substitute on six occasions for France, and it will certainly be interesting if he does get the chance to shine this week as his side look to try and win the competition for the first time since it’s creation.

The 22 year-old hasn’t been free of controversy in recent weeks however, as he supposedly had a falling out with one of his own team-mates Gerson, but his current club appear to have sided with the young midfielder.

This weekend saw the Arsenal loanee named as captain against Lille, seemingly a statement of intent from the hierarchy of Marseille, but the decision didn’t help them to claim any points as the home side claimed a 2-0 win.

Marseille do hold an option to buy as confirmed by Sky Sports, so it will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds for Guendouzi for both France and Marseille over the coming weeks.

    Guendouzi IS technically still our player but to allintents andpurposes he is not, as he will never again wear our shirt in a competition match.

    Maybe in training, while we once again have to have him here temporarily whilst trying to unload him somehwere, anywhere, that will pay SOMETHING for the services of this overgrown child!
    Hopefully he may stay where he is right now ; in a different country from where we play.

      Didnt you say the exact same about Elneny jonny boy ?
      Pretty much word for word if I remember rightly.

    What about Saliba? Isn’t he the player who is technically on our roster? 🤔

    Some people believe or want to believe everything they read. The bad press that was blown up and twisted the last week was shown to be total fabrication of the truth, twisted to make headlines backed up by his manager who made him captain and dropped Gerson. I think he will go on to be a player but not at Arsenal because of blindness of those here at the moment.

      Strange thing also is since he got cold shouldered by Arsenal, he has been made captain of 21s called up to the French squad and captained his present club. Obviously someone doesn’t know what they are doing.
