Permanent Transfer: Arsenal to confirm deal for experienced Premier League star
Another Arsenal deal appears to be on the cards as the opening of the January transfer window approaches.
The Gunners were much busier than usual during the summer as five new players were added to the first team squad with two of them arriving in the final week of the transfer window.
Arsene Wenger also made sure certain players were offloaded as loan deals were sealed for Wojciech Szczesny, Takuma Asano, Jack Wilshere and Joel Campbell before the sale of Serge Gnabry to Werder Bremen was confirmed.
New rumours have suggested another Gunner is very likely to be added to the list of recent departures as the season reaches a halfway point.
According to Metro, Olympique Marseille have made an attempt to sign Mathieu Debuchy as soon as the winter transfer window opens.
The report claims that the Arsenal right-back, who is back on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury on his first team return against Bournemouth, is being pursued by the French side along with former Gunner Mathieu Flamini.
After forcing a loan move to Bordeaux last year, Debuchy has made it clear that he is no longer interested in fighting for his place at Arsenal after being displaced by Hector Bellerin.
