West Ham have joined Aston Villa within the race to sign Matteo Guendouzi from Marseille, in response to reports in France.
The France international has been with the Ligue 1 outfit since 2021 after leaving the Gunners following a fallout with Mikel Arteta. But that hasn’t stopped English clubs from considering a move to bring him back.
Villa have been the most certainly team to launch a bid before the tip of the transfer window. But L’Equipe suggest David Moyes is tracking the 23-year-old ahead of a possible switch.
Aston Villa have been linked with making a move for the midfielder this month, and it is known that he’s the Midlands club’s priority signing. The previous Arsenal player has briefed friends about his future, and is known to pay attention to West Ham and Villa’s interest.
