Matteo Guendouzi: Arsenal midfielder subject to interest from Marseille | Football News

Marseille want to sign Matteo Guendouzi from Arsenal, with the French club said to be interested in a season-long loan deal.

The 21-year-old has not played a single minute for Arsenal yet this season.

The France U21 international last featured for Mikel Arteta’s side in the Premier League in June, during the 2-1 defeat away to Brighton on June 20.

He was involved in a fracas with Seagulls forward Neal Maupay, appearing to grab his opponent’s throat after the final whistle at the Amex Stadium.

Guendouzi, who joined the Gunners from Lorient in 2018, is under contract at the Emirates Stadium until 2022.

The midfielder has played 82 times for the club in all competitions, scoring once and making five assists since his debut in August…
