Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi will be returning to the club this summer when his loan deal with Hertha Berlin comes to an end.
That’s according to BILD, who say the Frenchman has ‘no future’ at the Bundesliga club come the end of the season.
Guendouzi has been on loan with the Bundesliga side since the summer, when he was shipped out by Arsenal after they struggled to find a buyer for him.
The Gunners had hoped Hertha would look at a permanent deal come the summer, but it appears that will not be happening.
BILD explain that after a good start at the club, Guendouzi is now ‘conspicuous’ for his ‘theatrical appearances’.
The midfielder himself has recently admitted he sees his future at Arsenal, commenting that his agents and the club will ‘sit down and talk’ in the summer.
That is because Hertha are not interested, with talks about another loan having ‘come to an end’ for the German club, a situation the newspaper says has come about ‘unsurprisingly’.
They also say that for Guendouzi, the Premier League is ‘certainly more appealing’ than the ‘chaos’ at Hertha, so there’s another reason he’s personally keen to return.
Whether he has a future at Arsenal remains to be seen, of course, with that perhaps unlikely given the manner in which he fell out with Arteta last season.
