Kevin Campbell claims Arsenal will cut ties with Matteo Guendouzi in the summer, as he’s “not the type of player who is going to knuckle down”.
Guendouzi has been ousted from the Arsenal squad by Mikel Arteta ever since his clash with Neal Paupay following the 2-1 loss to Brighton on June 20.
Arteta has since alluded to “internal issues” when explaining the midfielder’s absence.
Guendouzi had been tipped for a bright future at Emirates Stadium after an impressive first season in the Premier League, but it is now being suggested that the Gunners will put him up for sale when the transfer window reopens.
And Campbell believes Guendouzi will struggle to change Arteta’s mind.
The former Gunners striker told Genting Bet: “I think that Guendouzi will leave the club this summer. Arteta has come in and he’s set a lot of disciplinary rules down.
“Guendouzi has fallen foul of those rules. I don’t think he’s the type of player who is going to knuckle down and that’s why he’s training alone. The writing is on the wall on this one, and I can’t see him coming back into the fold unless he changes his attitude.”
