Mathieu Debuchy joins Saint-Etienne after Arsenal terminate his contract 0

Posted on February 01, 2018 by Ben Darvill

Defender Mathieu Debuchy has had his contract with Arsenal terminated after he was forced to endure an injury-plagued stint with the Gunners. He has now joined French side Saint-Etienne.

Arsenal came out of January in a relatively strong position as they saw one of their best players leave, but they managed to replace him with a number of world-class additions.

Alexis Sanchez finally sealed his long-awaited move away from Arsenal, but he did not go to Manchester City and Pep Guardiola, he instead moved to Old Trafford to join up with Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United instead.

As transfers go, this one could be pretty much perfect. Arsenal need a new centre-half, and West Brom are in desperate need of reinforcements as their campaign is threatening to end in relegation from the Premier League this season.

It has been reported in recent days that Arsenal are looking to sign West Brom’s Jonny Evans with the defensive failings of the side constantly threatening to derail the team. Perhaps the ex-Manchester united centre-back can provide some solidity to a team that has looked so weak at the back at multiple points throughout the campaign.

Mathieu Debuchy of Arsenal is reportedly a transfer target of West Brom, with the Premier League side in desperate need of reinforcements following a torrid start to the season which has seen them languishing in 19th-place in the league after 22 games.

Arsenal’s last league game ended in a draw as a pulsating 2-2 scoreline saw both the Gunners and Chelsea share the spoils. The match itself was littered with moments of magic, goals, big tackles and controversy as the two played out one of the games of the season.

Arsenal rounded-off their Europa League group campaign with a 6-0 hammering of Belarussian side BATE Borisov at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

The Gunners came close to opening the scoring as early as the fifth minute. Olivier Giroud teed the ball up for Mohamed Elneny 20 yards from goal. The midfielder’s effort skidded off the surface and skimmed the outside of the post.

The visitors threatened Ospina’s goal for the first-time three minutes later, as Ivanic’s effort from around 20 yards out went just over the bar.

Arsenal saw their latest Premier League game end in a 2-1 win over Swansea at the Emirates as they displayed that they are not a side without a backbone.

Sam Clucas’ early goal was cancelled out by efforts from Sead Kolasinac and Aaron Ramsey, as the Gunners moved onto 19 points for the season.

The win means that they have a three-point gap between themselves and Liverpool, while they are just one point behind Tottenham in third place.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has moved on to confirm that Mathieu Debuchy will start Thursday’s Europa League clash against Serbian giants Crvena Zvezda (Red Star Belgrade).

The Gunners boss is set to ring several changes in the Arsenal starting line-up and it is Debuchy who will be among the starters tonight, almost a year after picking up an injury 16 minutes into his comeback match against Swansea last November.

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.

Arsenal right back Mathieu Debushy is hoping for a return to France before the January transfer window closes as the 31-year-old defender has been told he can leave Gunners, according to the reports from Metro.

Debuchy made 233 Ligue 1 appearances in ten years he spent playing with Lille, whereas he also scored 16 league games for Les Dogues. The player is hoping for a return home as his frustrations at Arsenal continue.
