“Guendouzi was 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 did not feature for Arsenal since the side lost 2-1 to Brighton in June and was not included in any match day squads since the beginning of the 2020-21 season before he was eventually loaned out to Hertha Berlin.

During the game against Brighton, Guendouzi grabbed 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.
