Tottenham ‘considering shock transfer for ex-Arsenal star just ONE YEAR’ after quitting Gunners

TOTTENHAM are eyeing a transfer for former Arsenal star Matteo Guendouzi, according to reports.

Guendouzi fell out of favour under Mikel Arteta after taunting Brighton players about their wages in 2020.

Tottenham are interested in signing Matteo Guendouzi

He subsequently made loan moves to Hertha Berlin and Marseille, who he joined on a permanent basis last summer.

But now Spurs are keen to bring him back to the Premier League, according to Get French Football News.

There is no shortage of interest in Guendouzi and Marseille will reportedly demand £28million for the midfielder.

Aston Villa are said to be leading the race to sign the Frenchman, who worked with manager Unai Emery at The Emirates.

Newcastle and West Ham are also interested in the 24-year-old following his impressive performances in Ligue Un this campaign.

Guendouzi has two years remaining on his contract but Marseille are open to letting him leave.

The French giants want to sign Chelsea loanee Denis Zakaria as his replacement.

Guendouzi has registered five goals and five assists in 40 appearances this season, and his performances earned him a call-up to France’s World Cup squad.

Guendouzi spent four years with Arsenal after joining from FC Lorient in 2018, and scored once in 82 appearances.
