Debuchy says relationship with Arsene Wenger has deteriorated.
Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy has confirmed that he wants to leave the Emirates this January.
The 31-year-old, who joined Arsenal from Newcastle in a £12m deal in July 2014, has had a tough injury spell since arriving at the north London club, starting only 13 Premier League games as well as going on loan to Bordeaux last season.
Debuchy told L'Equipe: "I want a new challenge. I miss not having that excitement and the adrenaline.
"I would prefer a straight transfer but I am only an employee. If the club says no to me, what can I do?
"Before my loan to Bordeaux, I was often in his office. But now, I have not felt the need to, I do not want to… We greet each other, we say hello, nothing more.
"You have to see what presents itself. I have a family, four children, that comes under consideration. And that is why, for example, I have not followed up some contacts in Turkey."
