Jenkinson and Debuchy for sale this summer

Posted on June 14, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

According to the Express, Arsenal right-backs Carl Jenkinson and Mathieu Debuchy have been put up for sale. The Gunners are likely to accept most bids coming their way to have the pair off the wage bill ahead of the new season, but there’s currently a lack of interest.

Jenkinson was previously set to sign for Crystal Palace until the deal broke down due to a failure to agree personal terms. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger intimated the former Charlton man requested more money than Palace were willing to offer. Jenkinson could run his contract down at the club and leave on a free next summer.

Debuchy was loaned out in the last year as a result of a lack of playing time in the Arsenal first-team, and is expected to leave this summer as a result. The ex-Newcastle United man has struggled for form and fitness, making just 23 appearances since his 2014-arrival. The 31-year-old is still contracted at Arsenal for another two years.

The emergence of Hector Bellerin at right-back led to few chances for Jenkinson and Debuchy to compete for a starting berth and the pair failed to impress in the rare occasions they were given the nod. Jenkinson, an England international, has made just five appearances for Arsenal since 2014. Debuchy has made only one since the 2015/16 season.
