Can Arsenal risk wantaway Debuchy against Sunderland?

There have been a few Arsenal transfer rumours in recent weeks talking about the possible exit from the club of our France international right back Mathieu Debuchy, and it is quite understandable for the player as he needs to be playing regular football in order to increase his chances of getting into the France team of Didier Deschamps as they host the Euro championships in the summer.

So Arsene Wenger was asked about the Debuchy situation in the press conference ahead of our FA cup match against Sunderland, reported by the Arsenal website, and he revealed that he was ready to let the defender leave, adding that there was no deal in place at the moment.

Wenger said, “He has an opportunity to go but he as well has not been in touch with any club.”

While I understand the decision of the Arsenal manager to keep playing our young Spaniard Hector Bellerin ahead if his French team mate, I was expecting Debuchy to start some games such as the ones in the FA cup. But if he really is determined to leave, can we afford to risk him from the start against Sunderland?

On the one hand he might be keen to impress in order to get himself the best possible loan move but on the other hand you could say that he has no real motivation to put himself on the line for the Gunners. That could mean him pulling out of a tackle or just not giving that much effort, so does Wenger have to stick with Bellerin even though the youngster could really do with a rest?

    1. The Arsenal manager has confirmed that a
      deal for Mohamed Elneny is close to being finalized having taken a little longer than expected.
      The Gunners have successfully agreed a deal with the Egyptian’s club FC Basel, however
      the delay has been caused by work permit complications.
      This is what Wenger had to say about the deal

      “The deal is complicated a little bit,” said
      Wenger. “We work hard on it, we hope in the next two to three days we get to the end of it.
      “The only [signing]? I don’t rule out anybody else. He [Elneny] will at least be one of the signings and comes into an area where we are short at the moment.”

      The boss was also asked about the possible departure of French right back Mathieu Debuchy:

      “He has an opportunity to go, yes, but we’ve not been in touch with any club,”

      HonestLy dunno what to make of this “we haven’t been in touch with any club interested in debuchy statement”
      what happens to all the Lyon, psg, villa , westbrom rumours abt wanting him?

  1. His attitude is killing his performance. I’m not going to blabber about what he should or should not do as he’s a professional and knows a lot more than me but maybe he should consider the fact that Bellerin also wants to go to the euros.

    1. We play the best in a match. Hector is better. How I wish most of these young guns had stepped up with every opportunity.

  2. I am happy with Debuchy playing
    He will try his best to impress other clubs to come for him and wants to show France that He should play in Euro 2016

    So I believe he will take the opportunity and try his best

    I just want a win, win win!!!

  3. The Arsenal fan’s are the least informed about their club in the entire world, let alone the premier league.

    Until today we thought that alot of key players would be rested for the cup game against Sunderland but now we are none the wiser! After Wenger’s latest news.

    As for Debuchy, according to reports there are a few clubs that are interested in signing him, Villa, Roma and Lyon as well as a few more french clubs but as per usual Wenger is giving nothing away by acting dumb to the situation.

    It wouldn’t make sense to play Debuchy, as an injury would leave him stuck at Arsenal as well as the club losing out on the supposedly £8 million transfer fee or £1 million loan fee.

    I would be very surprised if Debuchy plays for Arsenal again this season, let alone in the Fa cup.

  4. Some players are
    paid way too much
    others not enough 🙂
    Who is responsible for this madness?

    Weekly wages
    Theo Walcott £110,000
    Jack Wilshere £90,000
    Mikel Arteta £80,000
    Tomás Rosicky £85,000
    Danny Welbeck £75,000
    Mathieu Debuchy £70,000
    Oxlade-Chamberlain £65,000

    Calum Chambers £10,000
    Francis Coquelin £20,000
    Héctor Bellerín £10,000
    Joel Campbell £10,000
    Serge Gnabry £10,000
    Krystian Bielik £2,000
    Alex iwobi £750 !!!

    1. Bellerin on £10 Grand aweek ???
      Thats a Joke when you consider Debuchy’s Wages.

      I would be hitting the Boss ? for a maximum pay rise

    2. Hahaha……… And Adelaide isn’t even on the payroll?

      Could that be why he rarely ever plays??? L()L

  5. Another Wenger Coq up and a nice fat profit for Wolverhampton ?

    Former Arsenal striker Benik Afobe has agreed a £10million move to Bournemouth, Football Insider sources understand.

    The south coast club will break their transfer record to land the Wolves front man, who transferred from the Gunners for just £1.8million 12 months ago.

    The deal represents a huge profit for the Championship club and is even more of a coup given that Afobe has not been a regular starter at Molineux in recent weeks.

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has made a proven forward a priority signing in the January transfer window after losing Callum Wilson for the season with a torn cruciate ligament.

    Howe has moved swiftly for Afobe in a bid to fend off competition from Norwich and a source close to the situation has told Football Insider that the Cherries are confident of making the 22-year-old their second signing this month.

  6. several youngsters were spotted taking part in training such as Adelaide, iwobi and Reiss nelson

    wait a sec!…….who is Reiss nelson?
