New video footage of Matteo Guendouzi in action has sparked a debate among Arsenal fans.
The midfielder is currently on loan with German Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin.
The 21-year-old Frenchman has not featured for Arsenal since clashing with Neal Maupay following a 2-1 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion in June.
Guendouzi escaped punishment from the FA for grabbing Maupay by the throat but he consequently fell out of favour with Gunners boss Mikel Arteta.

He was subsequently loaned out and has made three appearances for Hertha to date.
Most recently, he played 90 minutes in a 5-2 home defeat to second-placed Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.
Despite the result, some Arsenal fans were impressed by Guendouzi, on the evidence of a two-minute highlights reel of his performance.
It remains to be seen if the player still has a future at the Emirates – but here’s what a selection of the Gunners faithful had to say about the matter on Reddit…
meezy295: Dreaming of a Partey Guendouzi pairing.
DuneCantos: Partey and Guendouzi pivot with Aouar/Dominik sitting at the top.
phar0aht: They both prefer the left though no. Still think a Red Bull style 4222 works with that midfield. Maybe 2 of PEA, Laca and Pepe could make it work upfront as well.
JuggleThat: Either Arteta has to back down from his non negotiables or Guendouzi has to apologise. I don’t see either happening especially if Guendouzi have a good season at Hertha and wants to stay there.
tbwebs: He’s doing us a favour by playing well tho regardless of the outcome.
Unstruck_music: Guendouzi could easily end up back here next season. I don’t think things look the same inside the team as it may seem from social media etc.
Francis-c92: I think we’re all doing the Ozil…
