Arsenal defender hints he could leave the club in January
Mathieu Debuchy says that he is planning to assess his Arsenal future ahead of the January transfer window
Mathieu Debuchy has hinted that he could seek a transfer away from Arsenal in January as he looks to play more first-team football.
Debuchy has found his first-team opportunities at Arsenal severely restricted in recent months after falling behind youngster Hector Bellerin in the pecking order at Emirates Stadium.
The 30-year-old has made just six first-team appearances for Arsenal this season and was on the losing side as Arsene Wenger’s men slumped to a humiliating 5-1 loss to Bayern Munich last week.
He also featured during the 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Sunday due to Bellerin being sidelined with a groin problem but was substituted after 77 minutes.
Now, the France international has hinted that he could seek a move away from Emirates Stadium as he looks to gain more playing time in the lead-up to next summer’s Euro 2016 tournament.
Debuchy told Canal+: “I have to make do [with my situation]. I try to stay strong.
“I have to stay focused until December and then we’ll see.”
