Debuchy wants January departure

English Premier League

The Frenchman has endured limited game time since his arrival in north London in 2014, having even been loaned out to Bordeaux last year after Hector Bellerin made the right-back position his own.

A series of injuries also derailed his career with the Gunners but, after proving his fitness in six cup appearances this term, the 32-year-old is hoping to move on in the New Year.

“I want to leave, to find a new challenge in January,” said Debuchy. “The fact I’m playing well will give me opportunities.

“We’ll see if there are good opportunities in the transfer window. I’m open.”
