The young midfielder joined Hertha Berlin in the summer window, after he was deemed surplus to requirements by Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, but there are whispers that Matteo Guendouzi could be set for a return this window.
That loss at the Amex was the 19-year-old’s last game for the Gunners under Arteta.
But while Arteta’s youngsters are flourishing in the Premier League, Guendouzi is doing the same in Bundesliga with Hertha.
After suffering with Covid-19 following his move to Germany, the midfielder has become a regular, starting the last eight games.
In his most recent outing, a 3-0 win over Schalke, Guendouzi capped an accomplished display with a stunning strike, his second of the season.
Used as one of two midfieders in front of the defensive minded Lucas Tousart, he is beginning to show the kind of ability that had Arsenal fans so excited.
Hertha boss Bruno Labbadia recently spoke of not only Guendouzi’s influence on the pitch, but his rapid maturity off it.
Recent reports have suggested that Arteta has been informed he could recall the France U21 international this month, as he looks to continue his side’s rise up the Premier League table.
If Arsenal could get the happy, positive and mature Guendouzi that is thriving in Berlin, Arteta could still have a player on his hands.
Does he still have a future afterall?
