Marseille open to selling Mattéo Guendouzi in the summer

L’Équipe are reporting that whilst Olympique de Marseille are closed to the idea of selling Mattéo Guendouzi (23) this month, the club are a lot more open to the idea of a sale in the summer. 

Aston Villa have been heavily linked with Guendouzi throughout the transfer window, and have been in contact with the player’s entourage. The Midlands club have even given Guendouzi a “beautiful financial offer.” However, no bid has been made to the club, and Pablo Longoria doesn’t expect one to arrive before tomorrow’s transfer deadline. 

According to L’Équipe, Longoria doesn’t want to lose the former Arsenal midfielder this winter, although he is much more open to a summer departure. Guendouzi, who only joined Marseille on a permanent deal from Arsenal in the summer, has a contract that runs until 2025, meaning that the French international would not be a cheap option. 

Les Phocéens have recently strengthened their midfield with the signing of Azzedine Ounahi (22) from SCO Angers, although Pape Gueye (24) is set to join La Liga side Sevilla on loan.
