Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy is set to join Spanish side Valencia, according to a report from Deporte Valenciano. The personal is said to have agreed personal terms with the Spanish giants and will undergo a medical this week should Arsenal and Valencia be able to reach an agreement on a transfer fee.
Injury setbacks as well as the emergence of former Barcelona Academy player Hector Bellerin has meant that Debuchy was unable to establish himself as a regular for the Gunner.
As a result of the players failure to pick a regular shirt at the North London club it is widely expected that the Frenchman will be leaving Arsenal this summer.
Debuchy spent the second half of last season at French side Bordeaux but still did not enjoy the best of playing time at the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux. Injury also meant that the defender also went on to miss out on a spot in the French national team for Euro 2016.
Debuchy’s next destination remains unknown, and according to reports from Deporte Valenciano, the 30-year-old could well end up at Spanish side Valencia.
It is widely believed that current Valencia right-back Antonio Barragan will depart the Mestalla stadium over the summer and the Spanish giants are currently believed to be actively looking to find replacements for the 29-year-old defender.
According to reports, the Valencia hierarchies have identified Arsenal defender Debuchy as a potential replacement for Barragan and are hoping to land the Frenchman for a cut price deal.
