Matteo Guendouzi appears to be headed for the exit, but that doesn’t mean potential suitors will get a discount on the Frenchman.
The midfielder has not featured in a competitive match since Arsenal’s defeat to Brighton on 20 June, and was left out of the 20-man squad for Saturday’s FA Cup final.
However, according to the Times, the London club still want £40m for Guendouzi in a straight sale, with Juventus and Barcelona both reportedly interested in a summer swoop.
There have also been reports of the former Lorient man being used as part of an exchange deal which would take out-of-favour Barca man Philippe Coutinho to the Emirates Stadium.
Guendouzi wasn’t even present at Wembley, where Arsenal and Chelsea were both allowed up to 10 non-playing club members in attendance.
