Arsenal fans react as Brighton eye Guendouzi
A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to express their disbelief after a report over the weekend claimed that Brighton are one of the teams to have made an approach for Matteo Guendouzi.
Guendouzi’s future looks set to lie away from the Emirates. The 22-year-old – who cost £8 million – spent a year out on loan with Hertha Berlin.
His exile began following a clash with Brighton last year. Football London reported shortly after that he was training alone after failing to apologise for his actions.
That is why many will have been left stunned to read a report from Foot Mercato over the weekend.
They claimed that Marseille are confident that they will finalise a move for Guendouzi in the coming weeks.
However, the report also stated that Arsenal had received a dozen approaches for the Frenchman. And one of those had actually come from the Seagulls.
In truth, it is incredibly difficult to imagine Guendouzi ending up in Graham Potter’s squad this summer – even if he was not seemingly Marseille-bound.
It certainly seems highly unlikely that he would patch up his differences with Neal Maupay after the pair were involved in such a heated clash.
‘As if’: Arsenal fans stunned by reported Brighton interest in Guendouzi
Unsurprisingly, plenty of Arsenal fans have been left scratching their heads after hearing of the links.
Many simply cannot believe that Brighton would be one of the teams to have made a move…
Brighton!? He hates them and they hate him 😭🤣🤣
