Arsenal’s former midfield sensation, Matteo Guendouzi, who made waves at the Emirates under Unai Emery, is on the verge of a significant transfer.

Guendouzi’s journey appears to be taking him to Serie A, with Lazio finalizing an £15.45 million transfer deal.

Arsenal’s Financial Boost from Matteo Guendouzi Transfer

Yet, the tide shifted with the arrival of Mikel Arteta, leading to a strained relationship between Guendouzi and the club.

Following a successful loan spell at Marseille, which culminated in a permanent transfer, Guendouzi continued to excel in Ligue 1. Consequently, piquing the interest of Lazio in Serie A.

The impending windfall from Guendouzi’s transfer could not have come at a better time for Arsenal. The club has actively invested in its future, making significant signings totaling over £210 million during the summer transfer window. The financial infusion from Guendouzi’s transfer will undoubtedly bolster the club’s resources, providing them with greater flexibility in their pursuits.

Additionally, Arsenal will also secure sizeable sums from other player movements. The sale of Folarin Balogun to Monaco in a record-breaking £40 million deal, coupled with Kieran Tierney’s season-long loan to Real Sociedad, further enhances Arsenal’s financial prospects.

Aston Villa’s Interest

Matteo Guendouzi’s journey could have taken a different turn, with Aston Villa and former Arsenal manager Unai Emery considering a reunion with the midfielder. Villa expressed interest in bolstering their midfield department during the January transfer window, eyeing Guendouzi’s talents.

However, the move proved economically unfeasible, leading Villa to secure Youri Tielemans instead.

Furthermore, Arsenal have also profited from West Ham’s £20 million signing of Konstantinos Mavropanos from Stuttgart. The Gunners had sold Mavropanos to the German club for £3 million. However, a smartly negotiated sell-on clause yielded an additional £2 million for Arsenal.
