‘Arteta Is Not Taking Him Back’ ‘I Hope He Can Give Him A Second Chance’ Fans Discuss Potential Shock Return Of Arsenal Outcast

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has not ruled out Matteo Guendouzi from making a surprise return to the club next summer.

The Frenchman is currently on loan at Marseille, and there are conflicting reports about whether the Ligue One side have an option or an obligation to buy the player at the end of the season. However, Arteta has suggested that the 22-year-old is still in his plans:

“For right now, he’s gone for the season. I think he’s having a really good spell at Marseille, and it’s part of the plan we made with him. He’s continued with his development and we’ll make a decision at the end of the year.”


Supporters on Twitter are very sceptical about Arteta’s remarks. While a few hope that Guendouzi will be given another chance at the Emirates, the vast majority believe he will stay in France on a permanent basis:

If Marseille do have a purchase option, the decision is very much out of Arteta’s hands anyway. It may simply be the case that the Spaniard is covering all bases if the Marseille opt against keeping Guendouzi beyond this campaign. We shall have to wait and see how things turn out.
