Swansea & Everton Eyeing Up January Move For Unsettled Arsenal Star?


Premier League duo Swansea City and Everton as well as Spanish giants Valencia are all reportedly interested in Arsenal full-back Mathieu Debuchy, according to the Daily Star.

debuThe Frenchman joined at the Emirates Stadium in a £12m move from Newcastle United last summer. However, due to injury and the emergence of young Hector Bellerin, Debuchy has only played 11 Premier League games for the Gunners since his arrival.

When speaking to French news outlet L’Equipe about missing the season curtain-raiser against Chelsea in the Community Shield, the former Lille and Newcastle man said; 

“It was a surprise and a disappointment Let’s say it [leaving]crossed my mind.”

Debuchy featured in the opening day defeat to West Ham United, but hasn’t played since. With England international Calum Chambers also seemingly ahead of the 30-year-old in the right-back pecking order, Debuchy’s days in an Arsenal shirt could be numbered.

The Swans look to be keen to add another right-back to their ever-improving squad in January, after being linked with a January move for Hull City’s Egyptian ace Ahmed Elmohamady earlier this week, also.

However, if Swansea’s interest in the Arsenal man is believed to be true, they face stiff competition from Roberto Martinez’s Everton and La Liga outfit Valencia for Mathieu Debuchy’s signature.
