Arsenal star attracting interest from around Europe ahead of January window

Posted by

Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy has been linked with an exit from the Emirates next month, and Roma and Lyon have emerged as two options.

With Arsene Wenger revealing in his press conference on Wednesday that it “wasn’t impossible” that the Frenchman would leave, it has resulted in various clubs being paired with an interest.

Roma and Lyon are reportedly monitoring his situation, as suggested by The Daily Mail, although it remains to be seen whether or not either club can match the valuation set by the Gunners who will undoubtedly hope to recoup as much of their £12m outlay as possible.

Wenger revealed that he plans to be busy in the January transfer window, particularly given that strengthening his squad now could put them in a favourable position in the second half of the campaign as they currently sit top of the pile heading into 2016.

However, it appears as though Debuchy is no longer required at the club having lost his place in the starting lineup to Hector Bellerin, and with Euro 2016 fast approaching, the French international will hope to gain some much needed playing time to get himself back in contention to make the final squad selected by Didier Deschamps.

The former Newcastle United star has made just seven appearances in all competitions this season, and in turn has failed to do enough to displace Bellerin.
