In what has already appeared as frustrating summer with pleasant ending for Arsenal and its fans, the latest reports making the rounds suggest a senior member of the Gunners squad Mathieu Debuchy has reportedly asked to leave the Emirates before the end of the transfer window.
The Gunners hunt for new defenders seem to have been fruitful with Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi already signed on. 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 this week after completing the transfer of Mustafi and Perez.
However, it appears the French tactician who recently sanctioned the loan deal of Joel Campbell to Sporting Lisbon and Asano Takuma to Vfb Stuttgart has given the green light for Mathieu Debuchy to leave the Emirates.
Eagle-eyed folk have noticed that Mathieu Debuchy no longer appears on the kit builder on the official website, which means the player is already close to sealing a move away from the Emirates.
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.
