According to Football.London, Paris Saint-Germain are the latest club to be linked with a move for out-of-favour midfielder Matteo Guendouzi.
The 21-year-old looks destined to leave Arsenal this summer after his huge falling out with Mikel Arteta who is reportedly eager to replace him with Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey.
The Gunners paid French side Lorient around £7 million to recruit Guendouzi two years ago and are said to be looking for a big profit on that figure. Barcelona have been touted as one destination, as have Unai Emery’s Villarreal, who’d like him on a season-long loan deal.
Guendouzi is no stranger to PSG. He was on their books as a youngster for nine years before switching to Lorient where he went onto establish himself in the first team.
While it would be lovely to think that the Ligue 1 giants are interested – they are absolutely loaded after all – this link feels a bit fanciful.
We can’t put our finger on why it just does. So there.
