I am sure that there are a couple of current Arsenal fringe players that would be happy to step into the role that looks like it will be vacated by the France international right back Mathieu Debuchy at some point during the current January transfer window, but former Gunner Emmanuel Eboue is hoping that his former boss will bring him back to north London, as reported by the Daily Mail.
They might not get any more game time than the despondent and disillusioned French defender because of the excellent form that our young Spanish star Hector Bellerin has been in since last season, but I reckon that both Carl Jenkinson and Calum Chambers would be happy to be the back up option to Bellerin.
I do not know whether the loan deal that Jenkinson in on at Premier League West Ham would allow us to bring him back early but he has not been in the first team lately and they look about to sign the young Leeds right back Sam Byram as well.
And it was looking as though Arsene Wenger had decided to use young Chambers in the centre of defence or has a holding midfielder, so maybe the former Gunner who was a regular starter at Turkish club Galatasaray until a fall out with the president and manager left him out in the cold could get his wish.
Eboue said, “I came back for training and was told I would not be playing.
“The president told the manager at the time not to pick me. The way I was treated was very unfair.
“We are looking for options but I’d love to come back to Arsenal.”
The 32-year old did spend six years with Arsenal and played the 2006 Champions League final for us, but I am not too sure that he is what Wenger has in mind as a replacement for Debuchy. Would you want him back?
