Marseille are closing in on a deal for Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi.

The French club are in advanced talks with the Gunners and there is hope a move can be concluded soon.

Marseille are expected to take Guendouzi on loan for the upcoming season before signing him permanently next summer for around £10million.

The midfielder has been looking to leave Arsenal this summer after spending last season on loan at Hertha Berlin.

Clubs around Europe have shown an interest in Guendouzi - but the 22-year-old’s preferred destination is Marseille.

A deal with Marseille is not done yet, however talks are progressing well and an agreement should be found.

Marseille are also interested in Arsenal defender William Saliba and they would like to sign him on loan for the season.

Clubs in the Premier League, such as Newcastle United, have also recently shown an interest in the 20-year-old.

Talks with Marseille are understood to be at an early stage and not as advanced as a deal for Guendouzi.
