Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Arsenal want away defender, Mathieu Debuchy look set to be heading to Germany after all with English Premier League side Aston Villa refusing to meth the loan fee for the French defender.
According to Sportwitness, Debuchy has been heavily linked with a loan move to Aston Villa, and he also admitted talking to Aston Villa manager Remi Garde over the phone about a possible loan move. The French man is seeking a move away from the Emirates in search for more playing time in a bid to boost his chances of making Didier Deschamp’s team for the European Championship in the summer.
According to the TELEGRAPH, Debuchy’s loan fee of around £1.25 Million is proving to be a stumbling block for Villa’s board, who are reluctant to spend as they prepare for likely relegation to the Championship. Villa have also pulled out of a loan deal to sign Bordeaux defender Lamine Sane, with sources in France suggesting they were informed by Villa that funds were to be scaled back this month.
Debuchy would now accept the offer from Bayer Leverkusen and may be heading to Germany for the remainder of the season as he has not featured for the Gunners since November.
