Arsenal bad-boy Guendouzi in ‘advanced talks’ with Barcelona as Gunners demand £36m for transfer but open to loan deal


- Advertisment -

MATTEO GUENDOUZI’S representatives are reportedly in “advanced talks” with Barcelona with the Arsenal star set to make a decision on his future next month.

The midfielder is training away from the first-team after a falling out with boss Mikel Arteta last month.

Fiery Guendouzi was involved in a scuffle with Neal Maupay following the Gunners’ 2-1 defeat to Brighton on June 20.

He has subsequently failed to even make a matchday squad as Arsenal have gone five games unbeaten since.

Reports emerged ten days ago he had brought up the prospect of leaving the Emirates at the end of the season due to his career’s “regression” under Arteta.

Now L’Équipe claims the likes of Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid have enquired about him.

But they state the most “concrete” talks have taken place between the player’s entourage and Barcelona, although they are believed to be advancing slowly.

Arsenal want at least £36million for the Lorient man but are open to listening to offers of a loan arrangement.

The Gunners have no interest in beginning negotiations for Guendouzi until the campaign has finished as they focus on trying to finish in a Champions League place.

Perhaps surprisingly, the ace has also taken the same view and will wait until the season’s end, whether he is included in Arteta’s squad or not, before entering talks about a switch elsewhere.

He does not just want to leave for the sake of it and hopes a project will present itself that will allow him the best opportunity to stake a claim for a place in France’s European Championship squad next summer.
