While Arsene Wenger has confirmed the arrivals of Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi from Deportivo La Coruna and Valencia respectively, the Arsenal manager could perform more transfer businesses [despite saying he won’t], but those activities could involve players leaving the Emirates.
One of them is Mathieu Debuchy. The right-back’s shirt has reportedly been removed from as an option from Arsenal’s online shop, hinting that a move away before Wednesday’s transfer deadline could be on the cards.
Premier League sides are finding it increasingly difficult to move on unwanted players because of the high wages they are being paid and such has been the case with Debuchy.
After signing for Arsenal in the summer of 2014 from Newcastle United, Debuchy suffered an unfortunate ruptured ankle ligaments and a dislocated shoulder, handing Hector Bellerin a shot at first team football.
Bellerin subsequently became first-choice for Wenger in that position, as Debuchy has found it hard to displace the young Spaniard.
Clubs like Roma, Juventus and several French outfits wants Debuchy and he could complete a transfer away from Arsenal in the coming days.
