Villareal boss gets Arsenal star on the phone to try lure him to Spain

Villareal manager Unai Emery has called Matteo Guendouzi to try and convince him to quit Arsenal.

The young French midfielder has fallen out of favour with current boss Mikel Arteta, and is believed to be available for transfer in the current window.

Guendouzi hasn’t been included in a matchday squad since our Premier League loss to Brighton in which he supposedly ridiculed some of their players over their low wages, as well as being spotted gripping Neal Maupay by the throat.

The 21 year-old was since ordered to train alone, away from the rest of the playing squad, and his future remains uncertain.

Former manager Unai Emery is now looking to save him from his current nightmare, where he appears to have been frozen out, and bring him to Spain.

The manager, who was removed from his role at Arsenal only nine months ago, is claimed to have called Guendouzi to try and convince him to join him at the Estadio de la Ceramica, as reported by FootMercato.

A possible loan with an option to buy could well be on the cards, although the Gunners will likely prefer a straight sale if they can muster one, with our finances having been in better states thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic and the loss of incomes which has ensued.

Real Madrid, Newcastle and Barcelona are also linked by the Express with an interest in his signature, but no bids are believed to have been received as of yet.

Would Arsenal be open to a loan deal that could potentially allow the youngster time to mature away from the current crop?

    No loan just sell or a swap deal for someone else. Guendouzi can get us £40m+….

    Apparently we have pult out of the deal for Coutinho, Willian is a gooner & Gabriel wants to join us over Utd.

    I dont know how Arsenal can spend any money when we are letting go of 55 staff and trying to sign Auba to a new deal which I think wont happen now. We may cash in on Auba…

    Owners need to leave Arsenal and sell up.

    I just cant fathom any team
    splashing the requisite cash for
    MG. If the young Frenchmen
    refuses to reconcile with MA and
    demands to be moved on than a
    swap or loan deal with option to
    buy might be Arsenals only
    realistic choice in the matter.

    A Partey or Coutinho deal sweetner
    would be just fine for me. 😁

    OT, just watched a few clips of
    Ibrahim Dialo, DM for Brestia in
    Ligue One and Holy Smokes the
    young lad looks like Kante 2.0. He
    has EVERYTHING in his locker to
    be an instant success @ the
    Emirates.
    If LT leaves for a return to Siere A,
    and Partey isnt feasible AFC should
    do everything and anything to
    secure his signjng.

    Watch the Youtube clips folks, its
    VERY impressive.

    AFC will rightly never accept a mere loan deal for a young and valuable to sell player. He will be either sold or more likely used in a swap. But I think we can forget the idea of a loan. It will not help us one bit and loans are for youngplayers still developing and who will come back a better player.

    I have no doubt that MA wants this arrogant and not esp talented kid out of the door permanently. That is what will happen IMO.
