Arsenal loan Guendouzi to Hertha Berlin


Arsenal have loaned midfielder Matteo Guendouzi to Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin on the final day of the transfer window.

Guendouzi has been one of the players Arsenal were keen to move on this summer after his relationship with head coach Mikel Arteta had deteriorated.

The 21-year-old has not featured for Arsenal since the side lost 2-1 to Brighton in June and hasn’t been included in any match day squads since the beginning of the 2020-21 season.

During the game, Guendouzi grabbed Brighton striker Neal Maupay by the neck after full-time. An internal disciplinary meeting was held and the Football Association investigated the incident but no charges were brought.
