Arsenal defender Debuchy wants out.


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.

Hector Bellerin's form has also reduced the Frenchman's chances of re-establishing himself in Arsene Wenger's starting XI, with another loan move in the New Year being suggested by the Gunners.

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."
