Everton, Newcastle United vying for Matteo Guendouzi, Aston Villa in talks

Everton and Newcastle United have reportedly joined Aston Villa in the race to sign Matteo Guendouzi this summer.

According to TEAMtalk, Everton and Newcastle United will provide stiff competition to Aston Villa, who are already in talks to sign Matteo Guendouzi. The French midfielder is reportedly valued at €30 million by Lazio.

The opportunity to return to the Premier League could be quite exciting for him. He has shown his quality with Arsenal in the past, and he could be a key player for Everton, Newcastle United, and Aston Villa.

Everton need a midfield controller, someone who can control the tempo of the game and recycle possession amid uncertainties surrounding the future of Amadou Onana. Matteo Guendouzi seems like the ideal option for them, and it remains to be seen whether they decide to make a move for him in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United need more quality in the midfield as well. Bruno Guimaraes has been linked with a move away from the club, and the Magpies will have to replace him adequately if an exit materialises. The former Arsenal midfielder certainly fits the profile and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Aston Villa keen on signing Guendouzi

Aston Villa have already initiated the move to sign Matteo Guendouzi, and it remains to be seen whether they can beat Everton and Newcastle United to his signature. Aston Villa had an impressive 2023/24 campaign, and they managed to secure UEFA Champions League qualification.

They need quality players this summer, and Guendouzi would be a superb addition. The West Midlands club need more quality in the midfield, and the French international is likely to be attracted to the idea of playing for them. All three clubs have the financial muscle to pay the reported €30 million fee for the player, and it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds.

The midfielder will want to compete at the highest level and push for trophies. A move to Aston Villa would be more appealing for him compared to the other two clubs. In addition, he worked under Unai Emery during his time at Arsenal, and a reunion with the Spanish manager will be quite attractive for him. It remains to be seen whether the West Midlands club can win the race for his signature.
