Arsenal successfully completing the transfer of Granit Xhaka, Arsenal are set to complete yet another transfer deal. This time it is a player set to leave the club and not an incoming. According to reports, West Ham United are set to complete the signing of Arsenal and France international.
The Frenchman who ends £70,000 a week at Arsenal has not been able to regain back his spot in the first team ever since losing it to Hector Bellerin. He spent half of last season on loan in the French league with Bordeaux which was a success hence he has been linked with moves to Lyon and West Ham United.
It appears the Hammers will win the race for the player as they are reportedly ready to pay £12 million for the player which is the same amount Arsenal paid to Newcastle United in 2014 to sign him. The Hammers are said to have agreed personal terms with the player and for them to have open discussion with the player, it means Wenger has allowed them as it would be illegal for them to approve the player without permission from Arsenal.
Getting rid of Debuchy will be a good piece of business. There is certainly no point keeping a player who doesn’t seem interested in playing for us in the team.
