The transfer window is open and the fans are eagerly waiting for their club to announce their first signing. However, we are made to understand that an exit is likely to be announced soon.
The Gunners have a tradition of releasing the deadwoods before they complete the transfer of new signings, and from the report doing the round, this transfer window may prove to be no exception.
The Mirror reports that Italian side, AS Roma, are about to bid for the Mathieu Debuchy in coming days. It is reported that they view him as the most probable replacement for Maicon who is now 34 years old.
It is no surprise since Italian clubs have a knack for signing experienced players who are in their 30’s. Considering that Roma are reluctant to let Francesco Totti who is 39 leave the club, a 30-year-old Debuchy is still at his prime.
The French international was speculated to join either Newcastle or Aston Villa to bolster his chances of making the France EURO ’16 squad. However, he may be end up with Wojciech Szczęsny in the Italian Seria A.
Wenger admitted earlier this week that his hands are tied since the player’s contract expires in the summer and it is no good idea to keep an unhappy player at the club
“It’s not impossible Debuchy will leave, I’m happy for him to stay, but we’ll see.”
