Arsenal evening headlines as David Luiz delivers verdict on Matteo Guendouzi transfer speculation

Here are the latest Arsenal evening headlines for Thursday July 9.

David Luiz tries to save Matteo Guendouzi’s Arsenal career

David Luiz has launched a personal plea to Matteo Guendouzi to apologise for his behaviour in a bid to save his Arsenal career, according to France Football .

Guendouzi, 21, joined Arsenal from Lorient in 2018 but has fallen out of favour under Mikel Arteta of late, and has been forced to train by himself for the last two weeks.

The start of their disagreement occurred when Guendouzi clashed with Neal Maupay and grabbed the striker by the throat.

He has since told the club he is eager to leave during the next transfer window, only for David Luiz to try and intervene.

The Brazilian urged Guendouzi to show more discipline, with the midfielder said to have rejected Luiz’s suggestion.

This comes after Guendouzi’s boss at Lorient, Bernard Casoni, warned him that he would remain unfulfilled potential for as long as his attitude remains the same way.

“Guendouzi’s problem is not physical and is not technical,” said Casoni in quotes reported by Mail Online.

“It’s his attitude, it’s not good for the team or the coach. My relationship with him wasn’t very good.

“I picked him for a cup game against Nice, but he got booked early on. The ref told me at half-time to warn Guendouzi: one more foul and you’re off, but in the second half nothing changed.”

Thierry Henry hits back at Jose Mourinho with Tottenham jibe that Arsenal fans will love

Thierry Henry has snapped back at Jose Mourinho after the Portuguese took a swipe at Arsenal and claimed he never thought about Tottenham during his career.

Henry was part of a golden era for Arsenal during which they maintained dominance over North London rivals Spurs.

In recent years the gap has closed somewhat, and the Spurs boss reacted angrily after a Twitter post from Arsenal poked fun at Tottenham’s 3-1 defeat to Sheffield United.

The Portuguese said: “If they [Arsenal] were top of the league or fighting for top four in a really good moment they wouldn’t enjoy the problems of others.

“You only enjoy the problems of others when you are also in trouble. In the end, it says more about them. They don’t have much to celebrate [so] they have to get every opportunity to do it. They are in a very similar situation to us in the table.”

Never one to bite his tongue, Henry noted the upcoming derby between the two will be ‘weird’ and said he looks forward to what Mourinho has to say, even if he did not think about Tottenham during his own time in North London.
