Arsenal demanding bumper fee for outcast Guendouzi

Arsenal are demanding big money to sell Matteo Guendouzi.

The Times says Guendouzi appears to be headed for the exit, but that doesn't mean potential suitors will get a discount on the Frenchman.

The midfielder has not featured in a competitive match since Arsenal's defeat to Brighton on 20 June, and was left out of the 20-man squad for Saturday's FA Cup final.

However, the London club still want £40m for Guendouzi in a straight sale, with Juventus and Barcelona both reportedly interested in a summer swoop.

There have also been reports of the former Lorient man being used as part of an exchange deal which would take out-of-favour Barca man Philippe Coutinho to the Emirates Stadium.
