Matteo Guendouzi is determined to stay at Arsenal and has turned down three opportunities to leave the club this summer, according to a report.
The 21-year-old has been frozen out by manager Mikel Arteta since a bust-up at the end of a match against Brighton & Hove Albion in June and is understood to be up for sale this summer.
Guendouzi has not played a single minute since then, but ESPN reports that he has no interest in leaving the club and is determined to work his way back into Arteta’s thinking.
The report claims that the Frenchman has rejected offers from Valencia, Atalanta BC and Villarreal in favour of staying to fight for his place at the Emirates Stadium.
Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with a move for the midfielder.
Arteta has previously shown a willingness to welcome players back in from the cold at Arsenal, with the likes of Granit Xhaka, David Luiz and Mohamed Elneny being handed second chances by the Spaniard.
