Here are your Arsenal morning headlines for 27 June.
Arteta talks about Guendouzi’s future
Guendouzi was left out of the matchday squad as Arsenal beat Southampton 2-0 on Thursday evening. Last weekend, against Brighton, he was involved with an altercation with Neal Maupay at the end of the match, avoiding a ban despite putting his hands around his opponent’s throat.
Asked about the incident with Maupay, Arteta said: “Whatever internal issues we have we will deal with privately.”
As for whether Guendouzi will be an Arsenal player next season, Arteta did not give a definitive answer.
“All the players that are here, I’m counting on them,” he said. “If they want to jump on the boat, they are more than welcome and that’s always my mindset.
“I’m here to help all of them improve individually and collectively and that is my job.”
Ceballos hints at Real Betis homecoming
Dani Ceballos has considered his options come the end of the season and would be open to returning to Real Betis.
Ceballos came through the Betis academy and made 105 appearances for the club before joining Real Madrid in 2017. Speaking to Cadena SER, via Marca , he said: “Betis? It’s an option. I’m not closing the door on any club.
“La Liga sounds good to me, but I’m also happy at Arsenal and I have to respect them. I’m focused on the games to come.
“My goal for next season is to play, and it’s difficult to play 40 games as an important player at Real Madrid. I’ve been happy playing this season and I want to do the same next season.
“I have to make the decision myself. I’m in charge of my future.
“You miss playing in Spain because it’s a league where I’ve played my whole life, but, well, England has also been good to me this season. I want to be where I feel most at ease playing.
“[Zinedine] Zidane told me that it was better for me to play somewhere else for a season and gain experience, so I’ll have a chat with him. We’ll have to sit down and see what the best option is.”
