Where ever this benevolence seem to come from, long may it continue; This transfer window have seen transfer targets state firmly their intentions of joining the Arsenal army, with the gunners looking away from previous lovers and leaving a particular player with the polite reply that his place have been occupied by someone else. That hurts.
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger who is currently working with French Tv station – TF1 seems to be having this mischievous ambition of not signing any player who doesn’t feature in the first team for his national side at the 2014 World Cup (would he have kept Nicklas Bendtner if he was involved in the World Cup), with the Frenchman watching his targets with a keen eye while arranging a meeting with agent/family of his transfer targets who impresses him, he seems to have everything under control.
And it all seems that he has whispered some words into Mathieu Debuchy’s ear, as the player seems quite sure of his destination next season which has prompted him to throw caution into the air by removing Newcastle united as the club he plays for from his twitter profile.
The French international who was the main reason why Bacary Sagna was given a ‘warm reception’ at the bench in the 2014 World Cup is keen to play in the champions league, as he had tasted European action with Lille before moving to Newcastle in 2013, which is an uphill task for the club to fulfill at the moment.
It is believed that Newcastle United values the player within the region of £10 million, which is good business should Arsenal buy him at that amount considering he moved to the club for about half that amount a year ago.
Although Debuchy doesn’t have age on his side,it’s believed that Wenger wants him in order to take pressure off the shoulders of Carl Jenkinson while preparing him for the future.
The Frenchman who is quite splendid in aerial duels and quite good at crossing would be hoping to complete the move to the Emirates with the player already believing that the deal is “as good as done” as he has burnt his bridges at Newcastle United and there would be no going back.
