Guendouzi joined Olympique Marseille last summer on loan which is set to become permanent at the end of this season, with Arsenal ready to leave the France international for a relatively cheap fee.

Arsenal will kick themselves if Guendouzi joins France’s World Cup squad
Arsenal letting Guendouzi go on the cheap has been a contentious issue among fans and given the midfielder’s form for Marseille and France, there’s a good chance the youngster could join Qatar if he continues at that level of performance.
Indeed, Arsenal will curse themselves at such a decision. Finally, Guendouzi is ideal for what Mikel Arteta wants in a midfielder this summer and for the club, letting one go and becoming a top-five player of international caliber will be a slap in the teeth for the Gunners to develop.
