Arsenal He is willing to let go of Matteo Guendouzi, one of the soccer players with great future projection of the current squad. The English club has even offered the midfielder to Barcelona, club that will carry out a renovation on the campus with a view to the short and medium term.
The 21-year-old Frenchman can move to Catalonia as part of the operation that both entities can carry out by Philippe Coutinho, an attacker who has a current contract with the Blaugrana.
Arsenal wishes to stay permanently with the Brazilian and at the same time has proposed to Guendouzi as exchange currency. The idea is to tie the ’10 ′ that was on loan at Bayern Munich and reduce the cost of the transfer, which is around 80 million euros, according to the Sport newspaper.
The French midfielder, meanwhile, is valued at 40 million. At his young age, he already has participation in the senior team. In addition, the player has had continuity with the ‘Gunners’ since he arrived last season from Lorient.
However, Guendouzi has been crossed out by Mikel Arteta in the last straight of the Premier League. The midfielder has discipline problems that affect the good environment of the intern. So, the Spanish strategist decided to do without him and may not have him in the plans for 2020-21.
On the other hand, the Spanish newspaper indicates that Barcelona it has no competence to add the youth of the environment. Inter Milan and Tottenham showed interest in the French, but have opted for other alternatives.
Of course, the operation would fall only if the Catalans maintain the position of making transfers in exchange for cash. That is to say, the directive would put obstacles to include exchange of soccer players to reduce the final amounts.
