The 22 year old made 24 Bundesliga appearances, scoring twice and providing three assists, but Hertha are very much in a relegation battle, with only goal difference separating them from the drop with three games left to play.
It remains to be seen how serious the injury is, with Guendouzi set to feature for France in the European U21 Championships this summer in Slovenia and Hungary.
It also adds a layer of complication to the summer from an Arsenal perspective. With just 12 months left on his current deal, the midfielder is someone to whom the club are open to offers as we look to raise funds to invest elsewhere.
An injury to a player you’re trying to sell is never useful, but he should be well recovered by the time the summer window opens fully.
Best of luck to him in his recovery.
