Newcastle are reportedly considering a move for Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi after drawing attention to Marseille.

He spent last season at Hertha Berlin and has so far impressed this Ligue 1 campaign in Marseille.

Mercato on foot have now signaled that the new Saudi-led regime is keen to bring the youngster to St James’ Park next summer.
It was an eventful week for the club after the club was taken over by Mike Ashley, which made them the richest football club.
Steve Bruce was sacked last month, and after failing to persuade Unai Emery to leave Villarreal, they are expected to appoint former Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe to lead the squad.

Guendouzi is currently on loan at Marseille where he was praised for his good performance
Guendouzi has been praised for his brilliant performances in Ligue 1 so far this season in which he has scored three goals and provided the same number of assists.
His performances have been rewarded lately with invitations to France’s international matches in September and October – although he has yet to secure his first cap.
Guendouzi has, however, gained a reputation as a ‘bad boy’ and has not started for the Gunners since a 2-1 loss to Brighton in June 2020.
Guendouzi has been absent from Arsenal’s squad since losing 2-1 to Brighton in June 2020
Following a post-game altercation with Neal Maupay, he was excluded from the squad due to a “history of problems” regarding his attitude and conduct.
It was also reported in September that Marseille players were “fed up” with the French midfielder and “struggled” with the way he worked.
It came after the brash Frenchman faced off against teammate Gerson on the pitch in their 3-2 loss to Lens.
