Matteo Guendouzi has started in Arsenal’s last two matches and he became a talking point after the gunners lost 2-1 to Brighton & Hove Albion because he was involved in a scuffle with Maupay. New reports are now claiming that Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has made a decision on Matteo Guendouzi’s future after these acts.

Matteo Guendouzi arrived at Arsenal in 2018 and he had a great first season as he was hailed as the next big thing but he like many players has struggled this season and it looks like Arteta might not be a big fan of him as he didn’t start him in his first months at the club. Arteta has however been forced to play him in the last two games due to injury problems.

The Daily Mail is now reporting that Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has now had enough of Guendouzi’s antics and that the Spaniard will now be looking to sell the young Frenchman in the upcoming summer transfer window. The report claims that Arteta wasn’t happy with the way Guendouzi behaved after Saturday’s game since it looked like he grabbed the throat of Bright & Hove Albion forward Maupay after the final whistle and also taunted the opponents saying how they are sh*t and that he is earning more than them.

The report also adds that Arteta had also noted the incident where the 21 year old was dancing when he was leading the players in analysing the training footage. It is believed that Arteta doesn’t want this type of behavior at Arsenal and he has also been saying in most press conferences that he will try to change the culture at the North London club and it now seems like Guendouzi could find himself out of the Emirates Stadium if he doesn’t improve his attitude.

It is unclear how Arsenal fans would react on the selling of Guendouzi as the fanbase is currently divided on whether the Frenchman is worth keeping since he has been average this season.
