West Brom ready January move for Arsenal defender

Debuchy.jpgWest Brom fans have been left feeling rather confused after conflicting reports over a potential loan move for Mathieu Debuchy.

The Daily Mail report that West Bromwich Albion are among the clubs to have enquired about taking Debuchy on loan from Arsenal and are willing to offer the full-back a chance of regular football in a move that would last for the remainder of the season.

The 30-year old’s last chance to appear at the finals of a major tournament is likely to be at Euro 2016. But with France coach Didier Deschamps already explicitly stating that only players getting regular football at their respective clubs will be considered for the France squad, Debuchy is reportedly looking for a move away from the Emirates.

In the 18 months since the World Cup in Brazil, Debuchy has only featured in two friendlies for his country.

With only two Premier League starts so far this term for an in-form Arsenal side, Debuchy will continue to struggle to accumulate a substantial amount of playing time ahead of the impressive 20-year old Hector Bellerin.

However, the Birmngham Mail have written that reports linking the Baggies with a deal for Debuchy have been dismissed by Albion’s head coach Tony Pulis.

They state that when asked about the potential signing, Pulis rejected the suggestion with a simple ‘no’.

Should West Brom genuinely be interested in signing Debuchy, Pulis would need to cut current Arsenal loanee Serge Gnabry from his squad due to Premier League regulations preventing teams from having two players on loan from the same club.

Baggies fans, would Debuchy be a good signing? Let us know in the comments below!
