PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN have reportedly rejected the chance to bring Arsenal outcast Matteo Guendouzi to Ligue 1.
Les Parisiens have been linked with a move for the 21-year-old all summer, with the Gunners said to be demanding a £40million fee.
The North Londoners are keen to offload the ex-Lorient midfielder as they look to raise funds to activate Thomas Partey's release clause at Atletico Madrid.

Guendouzi has been frozen out of the squad ever since his antics away at Brighton on June 20.
But in a blow for Arsenal, PSG have no intention of signing the French youth international.
According to the Telegraph, Thomas Tuchel's side have turned down the player as they have no interest in him.
However they do state that PSG remain keen on prising right-back Hector Bellerin away from the Emirates.
Guendouzi remains a target for LaLiga outfit Valencia, but it is understood they are only willing to sign him on loan.
It has been reported that the Spanish club have held talks with Arsenal where they enquired about his availability.
And there have even been rumours that he could be reunited with former boss Unai Emery at Villarreal.
Speaking ahead of the Community Shield victory against Liverpool, Mikel Arteta claimed that Guendouzi will be handed a fresh start under him.
He said: "I have spoken to Matteo during the break and I have been really clear that everybody starts from zero.
“What you did two weeks ago or two years ago doesn’t really matter. It’s what you are able to contribute to the team now.
“I have told Guendouzi that at the moment he’s like any other player in the squad.
"He deserves to be treated exactly the same and I will do that to the best of my capability."
