Arsenal’s bad boy rejecting offers to leave

ESPN claims that Arsenal is actively looking for a new employer for Matteo Guendouzi, but he has rejected approaches from several teams.

The French midfielder got into hot water with Mikel Arteta during the Premier League restart after he was caught taunting the players of Brighton.

He was banished from the Arsenal first team after that game and he remained out of the picture for the rest of the season.

Mikel Arteta claimed in his press conference before the Community Shield game against Liverpool that he has given the midfielder a fresh chance for the new season.

The Gunners have, however, attempted to sell him in player swap deals in this transfer window, Lyon and PSG have both rejected the chance to sign him.

ESPN understands that Villarreal, Atalanta and Valencia have all been rejected by the former Lorient man too.

This has been a busy transfer window for Arsenal already, but their summer business seems to remain unfinished.

They have been linked with a move for the likes of Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar and one of both players might join them before the transfer window closes.

The signing of any of them will increase competition for a place in the club’s midfield and that might force Guendouzi out of the club.

      Its a mix feeling. He was once most valuable talented youngster. He needs to put back his mind and body on football not Social Media and Social Service. Till then, he is liability.

    If selection is based on merit, then Gouendouzi will be always in the starting line-up regardless of who the team acquires. It was a good decision by rejecting those offers. Does anyone think that Xhaka is better than Gouendouzi?Just because the selection is no based on merit, then Xhaka will start ahead of Gouendouzi

      Oh really? Then I am glad the selection is not based on merit!

    Gouendouzi is one of the best agile and tenacious midfielder we have at Arsenal right now.Just a season in our jersey BT you can see how sold out he is for Arsenal.in fact Artetas temperaments during his playing days was direct opposite to Gouendouzi.This bouy is something of his kind.he is Arsenals new Viera as far as defending others is concerned.He solely grasped Maurpy because of fouling his teammate when even our captain couldn’t dare say anything and now he is suffering out of that ?like seriously!give the bouy a break and let Arteta give him onother chance
