Matteo Guendouzi has indicated that he wants to win over Mikel Arteta and is aiming secure a place in Arsenal’s side for the upcoming season.

The 21-year-old was exiled from Arsenal’s first-team squad in June after he taunted Brighton’s players over the money they earned during Arsenal’s 2-1 defeat at the Amex Stadium.

After a showdown meeting with Arteta and Arsenal’s hierarchy about his poor attitude, Guendouzi didn’t feature for the Gunners for the remainder of the season and was left at home for the club’s FA Cup victory over Chelsea at Wembley.

Guendouzi was also left out of Arsenal’s victory over Liverpool in the Community Shield on August 29.

But the midfielder is now planning to win back a place in Arteta’s side for the new campaign.

In a post on Instagram on Tuesday, the French midfielder wrote: ‘2 games, 6 points! Proud of my team France. Now let’s go back to work Arsenal.’
