Matteo Guendouzi is hinting at a possible Arsenal comeback with his latest post on social media, following his recent spell away from the squad.
Writing on Instagram, Matteo Guendouzi gave his first hint at a possible Arsenal comeback, which would represent a major turnaround in the current situation with Arsenal.
The midfielder spent the last week away with the France u21s, captaining them to two wins and playing a positive role in both. He posted afterwards about the u21 games, but also gave Arsenal a mention for the first time since the club dropped him.
“2 games, 6 points. Proud of my team,” Guendouzi said. “Now let’s go back to work @arsenal”.
The 21-year-old also posted the red and white emojis usually associated with the Gunners.
This isn’t an apology, or declaration of love for the club, or even a sign he wants to stay. But it’s the first suggestion we’ve seen that he’s even willing to play for the team again. Up until now, he remained completely silent on the subject of Arsenal.
It’s probably a good thing if Mikel Arteta can get Guendouzi back in the fold again. Whether you want to sell him or keep him, he’s more valuable when he’s playing.
You do wonder how it might affect the moves for Thomas Partey or Houssem Aouar. Those deals are likely to rely on sales that don’t seem to be happening. But maybe we just need to be patient.
