According to L’Equipe, West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Mathieu Debuchy this January.
The France international, 32, has spoken repeatedly of his desire to leave Arsenal and feels his form in the Europa League and Carabao Cup could facilitate a deal after repeated fitness struggles.
Debuchy’s wages – thought to be around £70,000 a week – have proved an obstacle too far for suitors in recent years with French club Nice pulling out of a deal in the summer. He remains under contract at the Emirates until June 2019.
In November, Arsene Wenger said he felt Debuchy could challenge Arsenal’s centre-backs for a regular starting position. It hasn’t played out that way though. If a suitable offer was made, there’s no doubt we’d let the player move on.
