It seems Guendouzi is talking about his return to Arsenal in the summer. Any thoughts on this?

Would love to see him back if him and Mikel can work together, if not there seems little point to him returning.

The boy definitely has potential. But as reported consistently, his attitude appears poor. We will never know the exact truth, but his coach in France made comments regarding his attitude. We witnessed his attitude problem with us and now his Hertha coach has said similar. Personally, I don't feel attitude problems can be easily changed, and therefore may be easier to move on. He needs to knuckle down and work hard, despite his clear ability, and prove he can be selfless for his team. i'm not sure he can do that. I also don't feel he is a big loss in our midfield when we have Partey. He makes everyone better around him, in my opinion. Would much rather a Bissouma Partey mid. Mind-blowing combo.

He's obviously a handful and I wonder whether Mikel's no nonsense approach might just work. He might have realised his arrogance was unjustified - perhaps give him a run until the January window?

I’m happy with partey and xhaka they work well.

For me we have 3 positions / players that are too error prone despite also having a run of good games - Bellerin, Luiz and Granit. These guys play in key defensive key positions that need sorting next year if we are to start getting into the top 4.

I really don’t think that Matteo is an upgrade on Granit and just as likely to cause us defensive issues plus he has a terrible attitude. However, there is something about Matteo that he could be one for the future. I’d take him back, extend his contract and get one of two things - good player or a good price.

Partey is giving away a lot of silly possession but hopefully he gets into his stride with us with a run of games. Would love to see Bissouma partner him in Central midfield to give our attackers a bit of freedom and our goalie some more protection.

I’m sure Mavropanos can do a job in defence plus we have Saliba. Gabriel has to be a nailed on starter with Mari or Holding.

That leaves investing in a right back and may be cover for left back.

The last I saw he wasn’t even in the Hertha starting Xl, despite them being near the bottom of the League. Not exactly an incentive to bring him back. If we can get a fee for him, Torreira and maybe even AMN and reinvest all monies received into another high end central midfielder who will make a real difference to our first XI, rather than be yet more squad filler, then I would be happy.

{Ed001's Note - he has been out due to disciplinary issues.}

Very true Epping.

If true Ed001 then it's likely he hasn't learned a thing and is rather hoping we're desperate enough to take him back for the exact same issue.

If Arteta thinks he can beat some sense into the lad then fine, but I'm not optimistic.

{Ed001's Note - it is true, the club said as much publicly.}
