Arsenal Star sends a message to Arteta over his return
The club confronted him about what they deemed a poor attitude, and links to PSG quickly surfaced after that.
Matteo Guendouzi has said he wants to convince Mikel Arteta he has a future in the Arsenal first-team.
Guendouzi, 21, joined the club from Lorient in Ligue 2 and initially earned rave reviews for his performances. That changed drastically after a clash with Brighton ’s players in June, during which he poked fun at earning more than them.
It was expected he would be leaving the Emirates for a return to France, but it would seem he has not given up on his future at the club.
In a post on Instagram this Tuesday, the French midfielder wrote: “2 games, 6 points! Proud of my team France. Now let’s go back to work Arsenal.”
Lyon chief confirms phone call with Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette to discuss transfer
Lyon sporting director Juninho Pernambucano has revealed he held discussions with Alexandre Lacazette about returning to the French club.
The striker left the Groupama Stadium in 2017 to join the Gunners in a £42.5m deal.
But the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang six months later has seen him play second fiddle to the Gabon star.
Lacazette scored 12 times last year with several of his appearances coming from the bench. And Juninho had looked to take advantage of the 29-year-old’s situation at the Emirates by bringing him back to Lyon on loan.
He said: “That is not our level in terms of contract. For the majority of these players… In January I called Alexandre Lacazette to chat a bit with him.
“He was having problems at Arsenal and I said to myself: ‘Why not do a loan for 6 months with us where you will enjoy yourself, play all the games and score the goals like you know how to? And then you go back to Arsenal or somewhere else.’”
Lacazette admitted earlier this year that this had been his most challenging year in north London.
The striker has had to deal with an injury set back but also had to deal with a lack of minutes at times.
Mikel Arteta Delivers Newcastle Transfer Blow With U-turn Decision
