MATTEO GUENDOUZI is being chased by Real Madrid and Barcelona with Arsenal ready to sell, according to reports.
The French midfielder tested Mikel Arteta’s patience by bragging about his wages after a clash with Brighton’s Neil Maupay.
Seagulls ace Maupay injured Bernd Leno during the fiery contest and Guendouzi, 21, was lucky to dodge a ban after grabbing his rival by the throat.
He then mocked Brighton’s players over their earnings despite Maupay, who later scored the winner, earning £10,000 MORE than the £40,000-a-week Arsenal ace.
And French outlet Le 10 Sport claim frustrated Arteta is happy to let Guendouzi leave the club this summer.
Their report adds that La Liga giants Real and Barca are both willing to offer the playmaker an escape route.
Arsenal feared Leno would be out for a year after injuring knee ligaments in the collision with maupay.
But the Gunners were handed a a huge boost with the news that their German stopper will only miss FOUR WEEKS of action.
Ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Southampton, Arsenal revealed: “Positive news after detailed assessments.
“[Leno] sustained moderate ligament sprain during Brighton & Hove [game] on Saturday.
“[He is] aiming to return to full training in four to six weeks.”
Leno even tweeted his own update, writing: “Thank you for your support and getting well wishes.
“I’m going to work hard to come back on the pitch as soon as possible.”
