Report: Marseille able to meet Arsenal's asking price for Matteo Guendouzi

The asking price Arsenal have set for Matteo Guendouzi would work for Marseille financially, according to a report from Le 10 Sport.

Guendouzi is currently set to return to the Emirates in the near future after spending the year out on loan with Hertha Berlin.

He showed promise while away in Germany. But it appears that his performances will not lead to the Frenchman getting a fresh chance in Mikel Arteta’s squad.

According to Le 10 Sport, Guendouzi is not expected to stay with Arsenal. In fact, it is claimed that Marseille have already made an approach and learned that the asking price would work for them financially.

TBR View: Permanent Guendouzi move works for all parties

It always seemed unlikely that Guendouzi – who earns £40,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – would be able to force his way back into Arteta’s plans.

Their relationship seemed to break down completely at one stage last season. As noted by Football London last year, the 22-year-old spent a spell training on his own.

So a permanent sale looks to be best for all concerned. Guendouzi can bring an end to any uncertainty and concentrate on his future with the Ligue 1 side.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will – presumably – receive a decent fee for a loanee that they can then use to help fund their own plans for the coming months.
