Debuchy set for talks on future


Mathieu Debuchy is to hold talks with Arsene Wenger in the coming weeks as he considers his future at the Emirates.

Debuchy joined Arsenal from Newcastle last summer but his first season at the Emirates was blighted by two serious injuries which kept him sidelined for large parts of the season.

Hector Bellerin's form has kept him out of the side - the 30-year-old has made just two appearances for the club this season - and with Euro 2016 on the horizon, the French international is worried that a lack of game time could see him miss out on the finals.

"At the moment, I need game time. The past two games, I haven't been included in the [France] squad," Debuchy told RMC.

"Everything is clear. I need game time and that's why I'll have to discuss it with the coach soon.

"We'll see what offers there are between now and [January] - if there are any."

Debuchy contemplated leaving Arsenal before the transfer deadline but elected to stay and fight for his place in the team. However, he is now prepared to leave ad is open to joining another Premier League club.

"I love England and the league so yes, of course," he said.

"After that, if I have other offers ... return to France? Why not? We'll see."
