Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi will play no part in Arsenal’s FA Cup final against Chelsea this weekend, reports claim.

Ozil is reportedly in Turkey – with the club’s permission – while Guendouzi has been told he will not be involved.

Ozil, Arsenal’s highest-paid player, has not played a single minute of football since football restarted after lockdown.

And according to Goal, he is not even in the country for the biggest match of Arsenal’s season.

Guendouzi has not featured since the second game of Project Restart – a 2-1 defeat to Brighton – where he clashed with Brighton players.

It’s believed Mikel Arteta wants to sell him this summer.

While Guendouzi is likely to move on, getting Ozil’s £350,000-a-week wages off the bill will be a tough ask.

His agent, Erkut Sogut, admitted he is unlikely to move on until the end of next season when his contract expires.

‘I do not think there will be a change in the case of Mesut Ozil until the summer of 2021,’ he told Turkish outlet Fanatik.

‘He has a contract. There is no change. He will remain with Arsenal.’
