ARSENAL outcast Matteo Guendouzi has no future at Hertha Berlin following his loan spell with them this season, according to reports.
The 21-year-old fell out with Mikel Arteta after reportedly bragging about his wages to players during a game against Brighton last season and then subsequently being sent off.

And he was also involved in a training ground bust up with the Arsenal boss while in Dubai during the club’s winter break in 2020.
His volatile nature led him to leave the Emirates for a loan spell at Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin, where he has played 13 times this season, scoring two goals.
However, Bild are now reporting that Guendouzi has come across as ‘moody’, ‘stubborn’ and has a ‘resistance to advice’, characteristics which mean he will not be offered a permanent deal with the team.
This news comes after Hertha boss Pal Dardai’s recent quotes about the young midfielder.
Dardai told Bild: “It’s like puberty for him, he’s kind of a rebel. He has to work and learn like an animal.”
Meanwhile, Guendouzi told France Football: “I am focused on my season with Hertha Berlin.
“Next, we will sit down with my entourage and people at the club to discuss the future. This summer will be a decisive moment.
“I belong to Arsenal for another year. From the moment that I am playing for Arsenal, I will give everything for the club, fans, team, and staff.
“I will work hard for the shirt as I have always done.”

If Guendouzi returns to Arsenal, he will face stiff competition in midfield from the likes of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny.
The France Under-21 international was a regular under Unai Emery but has failed to hit it off with Arteta since he took over.
Having joined the Gunners in 2018, Guendouzi played 82 times over the next two seasons, before moving to Hertha on loan following his disagreement with Arteta.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have had a successful week, beating rivals Tottenham in the North London Derby and then progressing through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League despite a second leg defeat to Olympiacos.
