Saliba and Guendouzi set for Arsenal return

Both William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi are now set to return to Arsenal at the end of the season.

The pair are on loan with Marseille in Ligue 1, and, with the Guendouzi deal including an option to buy, and Saliba’s performances earning him rave reviews in France, they were expected to try and make both moves permanent in the summer.

However, Marseille are now set to be slappedwith a  transfer ban by UEFA, meaning they will not be allowed to buy players for two windows.

It follows the investigation into the transfer of Papa Gueye to the club in the summer of 2020.

The Senegal international joined Watford from Le Havre only to be sold less than 24 hours later to Marseille.

He has now been suspended for four months, whilst the French club face a transfer ban, although they have already signalled their intention to appeal.

As things stand now, both can expect to return to the Emirates at the end of the season.
