Matteo Guendouzi wanted on a permanent deal after loaned out by Arsenal

Arsenal and Edu may now make an early decision on Matteo Guendouzi’s future as the January transfer window looms. The French midfielder, who is on loan at German club Hertha Berlin might make a permanent switch from Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal is struggling at the moment in Premier League after a poor start. Mikel Arteta has a lot to work on with the side after huge pressure on his shoulders. The Spanish manager is planning to bring some reinforcements next year to climb up the table.

The Gunners are in the relegation zone at the moment in the 15th place. Arsenal’s last game ended in favor of the Toffees with a scoreline 2-1. Rob Holding’s own goal and Yerry Mina’s late goal in the first-half were enough to seal all three points.

Everton has moved up fourth in the table just behind Manchester United. While, Arsenal’s slump form continues, and a big worry for fans and Arteta. The only hope for the Gunners is the January transfer window, which can help them bring in some new stars to change fortunes.

Arsenal does have some options to rope-in in the winter transfer window. Arteta is planning for an attacking midfielder and a forward in search of goals. The club has been doing poorly in front of goal this season with star strikers likes Lacazette and Aubameyang.

Arsenal did try hard to land Frenchmen Houssem Aouar from Lyon. However, the Gunners couldn’t seal the deal for the most-wanted midfielder in Europe. Aouar’s performance in last season’s Champions League did attract Arsenal and other club’s interests.

Matteo Guendouzi wanted on a permanent deal after loaned out by Arsenal

Arsenal outcast is having a good loan spell at Hertha Berlin in Bundesliga. The French midfielder has been really impressive for the German side. He has also become a leader at the side with his control on the ball.

Mikel Arteta was disappointed with Matteo’s attitude and discipline in Emirates. The Frenchmen did exchange words with Neal Maupay during the Premier League fixture. As per reports, Guendouzi has reportedly made a comparison of his salary with Maupay’s and his team’s salary.

This incident wasn’t pleasing to Mikel Arteta as well. Matteo Guendouzi was training alone for the remainder of the season since the incident took place. In October, he was loaned out to German side Hertha Berlin.

The French midfielder made use of the opportunity and is performing well for Hertha in Bundesliga. He has made eight appearances so far this season in Bundesliga with a goal and assists to his name. Matteo’s solo goal came against Gladbach in fashion from long range. Hertha are averaging 1.5 points per game with Guendouzi compared to just 0.6PPG without him.

Guendouzi earns praise from Hertha boss

Hertha boss Bruno Labbadia is delighted with Matteo Guendouzi’s display in the eight outings. He said, “He is very, very valuable to us. We are happy that we were able to sign him.

“He’s a very, very good footballer, who has a good sense of space and is technically very strong. Even though he’s young, he gives instructions. He is not at all interested in whether he speaks the language.”
