Matteo Guendouzi drops unexpected hint over Arsenal future after loan spell ends

Matteo Guendouzi may have dropped a hint over his Arsenal future – after changing all his social media profiles.

The Gunners midfielder has been linked with a move to Marseille in the transfer window after falling out with boss Mikel Arteta.

Guendouzi spent the season on loan at Hertha Berlin, having been frozen out by Arteta after clashing with Brighton forward Neal Maupay last summer.

And the 22-year-old has been expected to leave the Emirates this summer with Arsenal chasing midfield targets such as Yves Bissouma, Ruben Neves and Albert Sambi Lokonga.

But he appeared to hint he could be staying with the Gunners after changing his social media profiles to pictures of himself in the red and white shirt.

With Granit Xhaka having emerged as a target for Jose Mourinho at Roma, and Lucas Torreira seemingly having no future with the Gunners, a second chance could open up for Guendouzi if he can convince Arteta.

Of course, he may have switched up his social media profiles simply because his loan spell in Berlin is coming to an end, after said an emotional goodbye to the Bundesliga club last week as he saluted "new beginnings".

Guendouzi tweeted: "To new beginnings … A difficult day arrives, this one, the day to say goodbye to an entire institution for which I had the immense privilege and honor to play football and defend its blazon in an extraordinary championship made of professionalism and humility."

The France under-21 midfielder was signed from French side Lorient as a relatively unknown talent, before being thrown in at the deep end by then Gunners boss Unai Emery.

He has been linked with an £8million move to Marseille after last summer's disciplinary issues drove a wedge between him and current boss Arteta.

Xhaka could join Roma this summer having emerged as a top target for Mourinho, who previously said: "Granit Xhaka is the main man in the entire Arsenal midfield, you can't see it unless I lend you one of my eyes.

"Without him, Arsenal is lost. He is a leader. Remember, mistakes are made by humans."
