Arsenal are in the market for not just attacking players judging by the intensity of reports linking us to the signing of one defensive player to the other. And with Mathieu Debuchy looking like he will be leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer, it appears Wenger and his team of deal makers have moved quickly to bring in a replacement.
Debuchy has made it clear so many times in recent times that he will like to leave Arsenal this summer and has been linked with a move to both West Ham and Olympic Lyon. From all indication the Frenchman will rather than fight Hector Bellerin for a place in the first team seek to move away from the club this summer.
In his stead, Arsenal are said to be close to signing Elseid Hysaj from Napoli. The player who is reportedly valued at €19m has been the subject of a bid from Arsenal. The said be is put at €15 million which is a little short of Napoli’s valuation of the player.
Napoli are said to be reluctant to sell the player but as we all know, the players often hold the aces especially when they have a release clause. Should Arsenal trigger the release clause of the Albanian, he is more likely to be playing for Arsenal next season rather than with Napoli.
