Real Madrid and Barcelona are reportedly monitoring Matteo Guendouzi’s situation at Arsenal ahead of a possible summer move for the midfielder.
Guendouzi has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium in recent days, with reports suggesting that Mikel Arteta would be open to the idea of offloading him at the end of the campaign.
The 21-year-old escaped a ban from the FA after grabbing Brighton & Hove Albion forward Neal Maupay by the throat following Saturday’s defeat to the Seagulls.
Rumours subsequently emerged that Guendouzi had taunted the Brighton players about their wages throughout the contest, leading to questions being asked about his attitude.
Should Arsenal look to sell the Frenchman then Le 10 Sport claims that Real Madrid and Barcelona would both be interested, with Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane reportedly an admirer of his compatriot.
The report claims that Guendouzi would even be in contention for a regular starting spot ahead of Casemiro next season, should he move to the Bernabeu when the transfer window reopens.
Guendouzi has made 24 appearances for Arsenal across all competitions this season.
