Marseille inching closer to signing Arsenal man

Olympique Marseille is close to completing a move for Arsenal midfielder, Matteo Guendouzi after his loan spell in Germany.

The Frenchman spent this season on loan at Hertha Berlin after falling out with Mikel Arteta at the Emirates.

He was on fine form in some of his games in Germany and that should have earned him a place in the Arsenal team again.

However, that isn’t the case and he looks set to join another club when the transfer window reopens.

Foot Mercato says Marseille has never really filled the void left by Morgan Sanson who joined Aston Villa in the last transfer window.

They have now turned their attention towards Guendouzi whom they believe can make a telling contribution to their team from next season.

Arteta has a number of options in midfield and a part of his rebuild will be to cut the number down.

He was never a fan of Guendouzi, whom he frequently introduced into games from the bench.

Selling the France Under21 star will bring in much-needed cash and it seems they will not hesitate to do business with Marseille as soon as they can.

Guendouzi joined the Gunners in 2018 and was a key member of Unai Emery’s team.

It is sad that he hasn’t built on the promise he showed early on at the Emirates.

    Honestly I never rated Guendouzi AT ALL so I’ll be really happy to see the back of him.

    Guendouzi has shown promise at Arsenal and at Berlin, but he is another central midfielder, like Ainsley Maitland-Niles, that just does not score enough goals to justify a first-team place in a top team.

    Assuming Arsenal bring Joe Willock back to the team for next season, it is hard to imagine Guedouzi finding minutes.

    I wish him GOODLUCK. £18m is enough don’t mind of any loss. We need the best for our club, for now and for the future.

    To be sincere Geundouzi has shown great improvement at Hertha Berlin scoring goals, he has shown maturity beyond his age he’s just 21 and playing as DM in a top flight league it’s just marvellous let’s give him a chance he can offer something special

    Get this arrogant, nothing special player out of our club, whatever it takes and do it ASAP.
