Frenchman hasn’t attempted to force Arsenal move despite falling out of favour

Matteo Guendouzi hasn’t handed in a transfer request at Arsenal at the moment reports ESPN’s James Olley.

The Frenchman has been sidelined at the Emirates after he fell out with Mikel Arteta during the Premier League restart in June.

He has failed to appear in any of Arsenal’s game since then even though Mikel Arteta claims that he has a new chance to fight for a place in the team.

When he was axed from the team initially, he was reportedly linked with a move to top sides like Barcelona and PSG.

It was even claimed that he asked the Gunners to sell him. However, ESPN is reporting that he hasn’t asked to be moved on this summer.

The report insists that his future remains uncertain and the club will sell him if the right offer comes, but he isn’t close to forcing a move away from the Emirates at the moment.

ESPN’s James Olley tweeted: “Am told Matteo Guendouzi has not handed in a transfer request at Arsenal. His future is still uncertain given the club are willing to listen to offers for him but nothing is close enough at this stage for Guendouzi to try and force his way out.”

      I almost feel certain Guendouzi will be starting the Leicester game after seeing him in training.

        Me too, Kstix. Be really nice to see him out there again… all that passion and er hair 😄

    OT.. Mark McGuinness joins Ipswich on season long loan – good luck, big fella

    Is Matteo Guendouzi being treated fairly? Danny Ceballos and Eddie Nketiah had a punch up live on TV and Arteta shrugged it off. It’s a shame as Guendouzi is a quality player and we have a very poor midfield. If Eddie and Danny can be forgiven….why not Matteo.

    1. Kstix says:

      I believe the difference is Guendouzi refused to apologise. I’m fairly certain dani and Eddie did.

        Feels like you are their team mate or assistant to MA, how do you know MG did not apologize but the other pair did.

        1. Kstix says:

          There was an open display of their reconciliation, even Arteta said it in the post match interview, have u been living under a rock?

    2. Declan says:

      Punch up? Talk about exaggeration. It was more like handbags!

    Good to have him back, some times fans fall in the trap set by media. No one came out and said exactly what happend so why assume the worse. Ppl are bound to have disagreement n sometime it’s good because not all the time the manager can be right. Probably MG does not have that experience yet but it’s a useful quality in player to voice their opinion all big players in past in every country use to do it and they still do it as well Ramos, Messi, Ronaldo etc etc. He will learn with time how to channel his energy in right way. I feel he is captain material and soon all will be forgiven by fans once he starts to put his head down and work hard to develop himself.

      The contradiction in your post though, we shouldn’t fall for the trap set by media because we don’t know what’s really happening then you go to make your own assertions as to what you “think” might be happening. Some people are something

    Gouendouzi will prove Arteta wrong, as Maitland-Niles did. Gouendouzi knows that if selection is based on merit, then he’ll be in the best 11

    1. SueP says:

      I disagree
      Arteta will be vindicated by making examples of behaviour and attitude problems, originally from Maitland Niles and followed up with Guendouzi. AMN changed his attitude and regained his place. It is down to Guendouzi to do the same.

  5. Sirjoe says:

    Prove Arteta Wrong? A coach stands his ground and insists on what he wants and the player finally amends his ways and starts to work hard and improve his attitude , how is he proven wrong? By getting the best out of the player? Most of these boys were spoiled during the past regime , they were allowed to get away with bad behavior, they try doing it to Arteta buy he’s not having any of that. How can a player like AMN and MG that has not done anything in football be choosing where they should be played etc? They should consider themselves lucky to be at Arsenal first of all.
