Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy is said to have held talks with Italian giants AS Roma over a possible switch in the January transfer window, according to reports.
According to Buzzsport via the Metro, the defender is attracting interest from lots of club in England and outside England but Roma is currently leading the race to sign the 30 year old defender.
The defender is currently out of Arsene Wenger’s first team and he is finding it difficult to break into the club’s first team due to the superb form of Hector Belerin and the French man is looking to leave the North London club for regular first team football as he hopes to impress France boss Didier Deschamps.
The Frenchman was quoted by RMC:
“We talked about my situation in pre-season, I haven’t talked to him recently, but we’ll talk before the transfer window,” he told French radio station RMC.
“I really need to play. (France coach) Didier Deschamps didn’t call me for the last two games, so it’s obvious, I’ve got to play more than I do, that’s why I want to talk to Wenger soon. I do have to accept it anyway, I can’t do otherwise.
This situation doesn’t please me, but I have to accept it.”
Debuchy joined Arsenal in 2014 and he has only made 12 league appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side since moving to North London.
