Arsenal set Matteo Guendouzi demand as Marseille begin talks over transfer

Arsenal and Marseille are in talks over a deal for Matteo Guendouzi, according to reports in France.

The 21-year-old returned to first-team training with Arsenal last month after he was exiled for taunting Brighton’s players over the money they earned during the Gunners’ 2-1 defeat at the Amex Stadium in June.

After a meeting with Mikel Arteta and Arsenal’s hierarchy about his attitude, Guendouzi did not play for the Gunners for the remainder of last season and is yet to feature this term.

According to Telefoot, Marseille have made an approach to Arsenal about signing Guendouzi on loan for the remainder of the campaign.

Arsenal, however, have told Marseille that they will only consider selling Guendouzi and are not willing to let him leave on loan.

The Gunners have already attempted to offer Guendouzi to Lyon as part of their bid to sign Houssem Aouar but the French club refused.

Guendouzi has also been offered to Atletico Madrid in Arsenal’s bid to land Thomas Partey but again the Spanish side did not want the French midfielder included in the deal.

Despite not featuring for Arsenal so far this season, Arteta indicated last month that Guendouzi would be in contention to win back his place.

‘Matteo has been training like any other player in the squad,’ said the Arsenal manager.

‘It is a new season and we had some really positive conversations between both parties, now he’s back with the group, he is training really well.’

Arsenal, meanwhile, are continuing to work on a deal to sign Aouar from Lyon before the transfer window closes on October 5.

The Gunners had a £32m offer for Aouar rejected last week as Lyon continue to hold out for a fee closer to £55m.
