Mathieu Debuchy has confirmed that he is in discussions about a possible move to Arsenal, describing the Gunners as a “great club”.

The 28-year-old right-back has been heavily linked with a switch to Emirates Stadium in recent days following Bacary Sagna’s departure to Manchester City.

Arsenal are a great club. We’ll see what happens

The speculation linking the Debuchy with a move to Arsene Wenger’s side gathered further pace over the weekend as the defender appeared to confirm the transfer on Instagram.

However, the Newcastle United player denied that it was him who posted the update, which has since been removed, on the photo-sharing website.

“It wasn’t me who posted it on Instagram,” Debuchy told L’Equipe.

“Everyone is saying that, but nothing has been done.

“For the moment, we are discussing it. Arsenal are a great club. We’ll see what happens.”

Debuchy scored one goal and made three assists in 29 Premier League appearances for Newcastle United last season.
