Tottenham and Newcastle United will reportedly look to sign former Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi from Marseille this summer.

According to Mohamed Toubache, Matteo Guendouzi is the subject of interest from Tottenham Hotspur. The North London giants are keen on signing the former Arsenal midfielder in the summer transfer window. The 24-year-old is also a target for Newcastle United, with Marseille demanding €32 million to part ways with him.

Matteo Guendouzi spent most of his formative years with Paris Saint-Germain but graduated from the FC Lorient Academy. Meanwhile, he rose to prominence during his short stint with Arsenal, which practically ended after a few run-ins with Mikel Arteta. And after excelling on loan at Hertha Berlin, the Frenchman joined Marseille in July 2021.

Les Phoceens initially signed the 24-year-old on a season-long loan deal before completing a permanent transfer a year later. And Guendouzi’s stock has risen again, especially after becoming a regular for the French national side. Meanwhile, he has chipped in with five goals and five assists in 41 appearances this term. But the player might return to England soon, with Tottenham and Newcastle United interested.

Recent reports have also linked the former Arsenal midfielder with West Ham United. Meanwhile, Unai Emery wanted a January reunion with the French international at Aston Villa. But Tottenham and Newcastle United have stormed ahead in the race to secure Guendouzi’s services this summer.

Tottenham will look to galvanise the first-team squad once they appoint a new director of football and manager. And bolstering the midfield unit should be one of the priorities for Tottenham. Guendouzi has thus emerged as a viable target for the North London club. And they should be able to afford Marseille’s asking price of €32 million.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United might find a use for Guendouzi as a defensive midfielder. And with the 24-year-old sitting at the base of the midfield, Bruno Guimaraes will have the freedom to express himself. Meanwhile, Aston Villa will compete with Newcastle and Tottenham for the French international.

Aston Villa, Newcastle, and Tottenham are all financially stable enough to afford to pay €32 million to sign the former Arsenal midfielder. And it will be interesting to see if he returns to the Premier League this summer. Guendouzi will likely have a point to prove after his Arsenal stint ended prematurely.
