There is an interesting Arsenal rumour coming out of France that our talented right-back Matthieu Debuchy is set to be a summer target for Paris St Germain. The French international only arrived at the Emirates last summer from Newcastle for £12 million but has had an unlucky season with injuries and has only actually played 10 games for the Gunners.
He recently revealed that he had had a “black season” at Arsenal and surprisingly also admitted that he wanted to go back to France at some point. He said: “I felt good, and then there were these two operations.
“I cannot say it’s a good season, far from it. I would say that it is a black season for me.
“Anyway, I learned a lot during the three months I played and also when I was injured, off the field.
“Although I am disappointed with the season, I’ll keep look on the positive side.”
He also revealed on Voix des Sports: “I still have three and a half years contract at Arsenal, but to finish my career at Lille, that’s my goal….”
In the meantime, Hector Bellerin has been very impressive in his place, and our very own Carl Jenkinson has been earning rave reviews over on loan at West Ham, and their have also been rumours that Liverpool, as well as the Hammers, are ready to make a bid for the lifelong Arsenal fan.
We all know hat Debuchy is a very classy player, but the fact is that he 29 years of age, while Jenkinson is the senior man of the other two and he is only 23. Surely it makes more sense to hold on to Jenkinson and let Debuchy leave?
