Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
The destination of Arsenal right back Mathieu Debuchy seems to have been finally confirmed.
The defender had been linked with premier league sides West Bromwich Albion and bottom of the log Aston Villa as well as European giant Paris Saint-Germain.
The Frenchman even hinted at a move to his homeland when he revealed before Christmas when questioned about rumours linking him away “A move to France, Why not?”.
But the The Daily Mail via tribalfootball now reports that Debuchy would prefer a loan switch to Roma this month –
The Frenchman’s departure from the Emirates was a matter of when and not if after Gunners manager confirmed the possibility of the player making a move when speaking to the media before his side’s FA cup victory over Sunderland, a game Debuchy didn’t feature in. “Mathieu has an opportunity to go but we have not been in touch with any club,” said Wenger.
Debuchy, 30, is understood to be seriously desperate about a move away from the Emirates.
Debuchy despite arriving at the Emirates just 18 months ago lost his place in the first team to Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin during the course of last season has made only two premier league appearances for the Gunners this campaign and is in further danger of losing his place in the national side for the upcoming Euro championship.
