Arsenal are not considering bringing Matteo Guendouzi back to the club in January.
The Frenchman has been impressing at Hertha Berlin during the first half of the season.
Guendouzi is out of contract at the end of next season, and could leave on a cut price deal in the summer.
However, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano says there is no will from Arsenal to bring Guendouzi back.
He fell out with manager Mikel Arteta at the back end of last season.
Romano said: "Matteo Guendouzi is *not* coming back to Arsenal in January. Hertha Berlin want to keep him until the end of the season."
