Transfer Update: Matteo Guendouzi set to leave Arsenal
Latest transfer update as Arsenal reportedly seeing plenty of interest in midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, but it remains to be seen if any club meets their touted €40m demands.
The 21-year-old joined the Gunners from Lorient in 2018 and has gone on to make 82 appearances for the club over the past two seasons at the Emirates.
However he fell out of favour with Mikel Arteta in the latter stages of the last campaign, while an injury forced him to miss the last eight Premier League games of the season as Arsenal may have found solutions elsewhere to result in him falling down the pecking order.
In turn, with a limited budget for signings this summer due to the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, it remains to be seen if Arsenal look to offload players first in order to boost their transfer funds.
As noted by Tuttomercatoweb, via the The Sun, it’s noted that Guendouzi could be an option to axe as Roma have joined Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona in holding an interest in the Frenchman.
However, it’s added that the Gunners want at least €40m for him, and so it remains to be seen if that hefty price-tag is enough to put those interested parties off from making a bid.
