Matteo Guendouzi is hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

It’s stated that Guendouzi would be an ideal successor to Casemiro in the Spanish capital, whilst his technical ability particularly appeals to Barcelona.

Le10Sport report that the youngster has two years left on his current contract, the Metro add that the north London outfit signed the ace for £7m from Lorient in the summer of 2018.

Guendouzi has started 24 of his 34 outings for the Gunners this season, with the ace registering three assists from these appearances.

The talent has made a total of 82 first-team appearances for Arsenal, he’s quickly become an important first-team player for the side but it seems as though his contributions may not be worth the controversy that comes with his aggressive and now allegedly disrespectful style of play.
