In what has already appeared as frustrating times for Arsenal and its fans, the latest reports doing the rounds suggest a senior member of the Gunners squad has asked to leave the Emirates before the end of the transfer window.
The Gunners are currently in the hunt for new players to add squad in-depth to their already injury-ravaged side, with defensive and striking signings on the cards. The Gunners faithful have been agitating that the club bring in the needed bodies before August 31 and, boss Arsene Wenger calmed them a bit last weekend by saying he was working on transfers.
However, it appears the French tactician who recently sanctioned the loan deal of Joel Campbell to Sporting Lisbon could give the green light for another senior member of the squad to leave the Emirates.
As per Get French Football News, Mathieu Debuchy has told Wenger he was to finally leave Arsenal before the transfer window deadline, having been displaced from the right-back spot by Hector Bellerin.
The French defender spent the second half of last season on loan at Bordeaux and has yet to feature for Arsenal so far this term. Debuchy, 31, joined Arsenal from Newcastle in 2014 after the exit of Bacary Sagna, but the Arsenal defender is now on the peripheral at the Emirates.
