Arsenal fans have been left licking their wounds after their embarrassing 1-0 away loss in Belarus in the week. However, things could be set to get worse as The Daily Express has published a story claiming that PSG are looking at resigning their former youth product Matteo Guendouzi from Arsenal in a deal that could be worth £60 million.

The Frenchman signed for the Gunners last summer from Lorient and has become an instant hit with the fans. The Emirates has become home for the midfielder and the supporters cannot get enough of him. However, with the likes of Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira being Unai Emery’s preferred two options in central midfield, the Frenchman hasn’t quite got the game time he’d have liked.
That says a lot though as if he’s not getting the game time he’d like at The Emirates, there’s no way he’d get it at the Parc des Princes playing for Thomas Tuchel’s PSG. However, money, and the potential to win trophies, talks and it wouldn’t be a shock to see a young Frenchman leave for the famous club in his native country, even if the price tag is a ludicrous £60 million for the 19-year-old.

The Gunners hate the idea of losing Guendouzi so soon after signing him and haven’t been tempted by the touted £60 million figure.
