Arsenal transfer news – defender hints at departure.
Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy has rocked the club by revealing he would consider an exit from the Emirates Stadium after losing his place in the team.
Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin is now ahead of Debuchy in the pecking order at right-back, with the Frenchman struggling with injuries since joining the Gunners.
According to the Daily Express, Debuchy would now admit that the possibility of leaving Arsenal has crossed his mind as he expected to come back into the team after returning from injury.
“It is difficult,” he said. “Even if I had not played a lot last season, in my head I would return to start after my recovery.
“Let’s say it [leaving] crossed my mind. But I want to be at Arsenal and to take my place.”
