Marseille have made contact with Arsenal and want to sign Matteo Guendouzi on loan, according to French media outlet Telefoot Chaine.
The Gunners have been keen on selling Guendouzi throughout the transfer window and offered him to a host of clubs across Europe. Interest in the former Lorient midfielder has been low and he remains an Arsenal player in the final week of the window. The 21 year old is also believed to be inclined to leaving the club should the right offer arrive.
After the incident at Brighton in the previous campaign, he was not included in a single matchday squad for the remainder of the season. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said that all his players started the 2020/21 with a clean slate but Guendouzi has remained on the sidelines and is yet to play a single minute of football for the North London side this season.
Arsenal want to sell Guendouzi on a permanent deal but Marseille would prefer a loan agreement. As a result, this deal is likely to be complicated. With only days to go before the transfer window shuts, it remains to be seen if the clubs will come to a compromise and get this transfer over the line.
