Wenger admits deal for defender is possible
Arsene Wenger admitted at his press-conference on Friday that the club is open to a deal which will see one of Arsenal’s first team players offloaded next month.
While the Gunners manager was busy with bringing in players during the summer transfer window, there was also activity at the other end as the likes of Joel Campbell and Jack Wilshere were loaned out before Serge Gnabry was sold to Werder Bremen.
Another player seemingly set for a departure is Mathieu Debuchy who has made his frustration clear in a recent interview.
According to Wenger, any offers for the French defender to leave the club will now be considered even though the 31-year-old has not attracted too many suitors.
“Yes, of course [we are listening to offers for Mathieu in January] but we speak. We have communication with all the players.” the Arsenal boss said on Friday
“It’s a little bit a frustrated article from a player who is injured, you know when you are injured you cannot play. When he had the opportunities to play when Bellerin was injured, he got injured.
“So I cannot do anything about that and I gave him last year the opportunity to go to Bordeaux on loan, but we had nobody coming in for him over the summer period and there are some things that are not true in this article.
“We never blocked him going to Fiorentina, nor Espanyol. They had no interest in him at all because we checked that, so you have to take this article with a little distance.”
