Matteo Guendouzi’s move to Marseille might not be the done deal we thought.
A couple of weeks ago, various sources in France claimed that Guendouzi had agreed personal terms with Marseille and were readying a bid.
Since then the Stade Velodrome outfit have had a €20 million offer for Brazilian midfielder Gerson accepted by Flamengo.
Do they still have room on their roster for Guendouzi? Is he still in their plans? Do they still want him? Can we continue to rephrase this question to eat up more words until the article is brought to an unceremonious conclusion? We could. But we won’t.
From a Gunners perspective, a quick deal would be good but interest from new parties is no bad thing if we’re trying to get a decent price for the former Lorient man.
Given Benfica once signed David Luiz – a man with a mop of similarly luscious curls – we know where we’re putting our money. You just can’t ignore the science.
