Newcastle’s Debuchy interested in high profile switch.
Just days after news in the English media suggested that Arsenal are interested in French international right-back Mathieu Debuchy, currently at Newcastle United, Metro reports that Arsene Wenger might be ready to make an official bid for him.
Debuchy recently hinted at his desire to play in the Champions League again, and a potential switch to the Gunners this summer could excite him as it would then give him a greater hold over the No.1 right-back position in the French national squad as well.
Arsenal too could benefit from signing an experienced player like Debuchy, who could be the ideal foil for the Gunners’ young defender Carl Jenkinson on the right hand side of defence.
Debuchy has been tracked by Arsenal since his time at Lille, and Wenger could once again get his French connections to work wonders with the attack minded full-back who could also fit well into Arsenal’s expansive philosophy.
