Matteo Guendouzi could well be on his way out of Arsenal this summer with the player said to be open to a move, Mikel Arteta not best impressed with his attitude and Real Madrid willing to bring him to Spain.

Real Madrid are looking closely at bringing in Matteo Guendouzi to replace Casemiro or Toni Kroos this summer. They believe the French midfielder, who is still only 21, has what it takes to succeed at the club according to Defensa Central.

Still under contract with Arsenal for another two years, Arsenal know that they need to make a decision about the fiery midfielder’s future. Sell now or offer him a new deal.

As he only cost around £8m two years ago and would command a fee in the region of £40m, the business side of Arsenal could well be tempted to cash in on a player who has irked Mikel Arteta with his behaviour more than once.

On the playing side, there is no doubting his talent and if he can be tamed he can go on to become one of the best midfielders in the world. That’s why Real Madrid are interested in him.

They wouldn’t be otherwise.

Arteta and the club have a decision to make this summer, and it’s not the only one.
