France and Arsenal right back Mathieu Debuchy could complete a move away from the Emirates in the January transfer window as he is reportedly unhappy at Arsenal, reports the Telegraph.
With Euro 2016 gradually approaching, Debuchy is in the want of a play in France team and he has been wary of his situation at Arsenal. He was implored by France coach Didier Deschamp to leave Arsenal to save his career and retain his place as France right back.
Following the emergence of Bellerin, Debuchy became a second fiddle player for the Emirates landlord. As reported by Goal, Deschamp spoke about his situation and said:
“Mathieu [Debuchy] has not lost all of his qualities overnight. But he has played very little. He needs to face up to the competition at his club,” Goal.com quoted Deschamps as saying.
“I spoke to him in September. He is a player who is under contract at Arsenal. He is somebody who is rational and intelligent.
“You cannot pretend to be at 100 percent at international level when you play so little. It’s up to him to see what happens in December, January.”
Debuchy has set his sight on a January transfer as he cannot continue to play from the bench, as per Telegraph. Debuchy moved from Newcastle to Arsenal in a £12 million deal in the penultimate season.
His first start of the season was against Dynamo Zagreb in the Champions League and he was calamitous. Should Arsenal sell him, Jerkinson would be brought back from his loan spell.
