Manager of French giants rules out signing Arsenal’s bad boy

PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel has ruled out a move for Arsenal’s bad boy, Matteo Guendouzi.

The Frenchman was frozen out of the Arsenal first-team during the Premier League restart after he was caught taunting the players of Brighton because he thought he earned more money than them.

Since that game, he hasn’t featured for Arsenal and he has been a subject of transfer speculations this summer.

Arsenal reportedly tried to use him to make some signings in swap deals and the Gunners have also placed him on the transfer market.

When he first fell out with Mikel Arteta, top teams like PSG and Barcelona were linked with a move for him as reported in the Sun.

The French champions started their campaign with a 1-0 loss to Lens and after the game, Tuchel was asked if the Frenchman would be joining the team that trained him, and he replied in the negative.

He said via Fabrizio Romano: “I’m confident over Alessandro Florenzi signing from AS Roma. We’re also in talks to keep Choupo-Moting here. Matteo Guendouzi from Arsenal? No”.

Mikel Arteta claims that he has given the midfielder and every other player in his team a fresh chance to earn a spot on the team.

Guendouzi has, however, fallen out with the manager before and it is hard to see him changing his attitude.

    I refused to read the article because of the title. Why the “bad boy” tag?

      Because he is a bad boy and I like him for it. We need players with strong character. Personally I think the reason for his freezing was too harsh. Boasting about his salary was stupid, childish and funny as hell. I laugh every time I read about it. To freeze him over it while there are thugs in world football like Sergio Ramos getting away with every nasty thing they can come up with.

    The bad boy?? Really!! Have saw this on a few articles labeling him this… abit far off the mark as he had a disagreement with the manager.
    Arrogant possibly but not bad boy.

    Looks like he is staying which I’m ok with if he knuckles down & I think he will, he is a very good player and aggressive for his age. Good mentality that way…

    Just make sure if he is staying that we still sign Thomas Partey. Aouer would be great but how do we afford both?

    Hey that’s fine, Guendouzi is fine if he changes his attitude. IF and a big If we ever sign Partey Guendouzi wouldn’t start anyway, but he’s better backup than Willock anyday.
    As for PSG and taking Bellerin on loan, glad we shut that down, it’s an offensive offer from them, and a bit insulting.

    I pity MG. He really needs to work on his attitude. He could’ve easily ignored Maupay’s taunts. It would be sad to see such a promising man’s talent go to waste. Luckily for him, there’s still time to regain what he’s lost over the last few months.

      Please was it Arteta or Guen who told you just the Maupay incident caused Guen being dropped?
      It could have led to it (maybe some other antics after the incident)…but not just that shitty scene as you guys have been painting all year.
