Guendouzi: Arsenal pal Ozil helped decide Hertha Berlin move

Matteo Guendouzi has revealed the input of Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil convinced him about moving to Hertha Berlin on-loan.

The French midfielder, 21, joined the Bundesliga side on a season-long loan after finding himself out in the cold like Ozil.

And the youngster revealed it was the playmaker - as well as fellow German Bernd Leno - who told him to make the switch to their homeland.

Guendouzi told Kicker: "I had a very good relationship with Mesut Ozil and Bernd Leno.

"Both of them told me a lot of good things about the Bundesliga."
