Arsenal full-back and French international Mathieu Debuchy could leave the club soon as he has drawn interests from Premier League clubs like Swansea City and Everton and La Liga side Valencia CF.
We had earlier reported that he had planned to leave the club after being ignored by Arsene Wenger since the start of this season. Mathieu Debuchy, 30, made just 13 appearances in his debut season at the Emirates Stadium after tearing ankle ligaments last September and dislocating his shoulder in January.
Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin who was bought from Barcelona youth set up got the node and delivered performances. His speed was phenomenal and defensive ability was commendable. Thus, Arsene Wenger decided to trust the youngster this season too ahead of Debuchy.
This forced Debuchy to think differently during the transfer window.
Debuchy was quoted: “It’s difficult. Even if I didn’t play a lot last season, in my head I was coming back in order to be in the starting XI for the resumption.”
Debuchy did start the 2-0 defeat against West Ham on the opening day of the Premier League campaign, but Hector Bellerin has been preferred at right-back since then.
Watching from the sidelines led the France international to consider his future ahead of the close of the transfer window.
Tutto Mercato Web suggests that Debuchy might seriously consider his future out of Emirates stadium in the next transfer window if Arsene Wenger does not field him regularly.
Mathieu Debuchy had spent his prime time at Ligue side Lille. He came to Premier League in 2013/14 season and had joined Newcastle United. He played 43 games for the Toons in that season and was impressive there. This tipped Wenger to but the player who replaced outgoing Bacary Sagna.
It will be interesting to see if Mathieu Debuchy actually leaves the club this summer and join either of the interested parties.
