The Sun reports that Arteta is desperately looking to cash in on Guendouzi, with L'Equipe reporting that the Gunners recently contacted Lyon to put an offer on the table for Houssem Aouar.

Aouar is valued at around £44 million by his current club after an impressive performance in the outgoing season.

And the Gunners are planning to include Guendouzi as part of the deal to sign the 22-year-old this summer.

Meanwhile, sources close to the club claim the French club has turned down their proposal.

Guendouzi has been frozen out of the team as he trained away from the first-team after another bust-up with Arteta.

Guendouzi infuriated his boss when he was involved in a scuffle with Neal Maupay in the 2-1 defeat to Brighton. And the pair reportedly locked horns during a mid-season training camp in Dubai.
