Debuchy Keen On Arsenal Move

French defender Mathieu Debuchy has insisted that he is completely focused on the Euros and he would keep his future talks on hold until after the Euros.

The Lille defender has emerged as a target for Arsenal this summer after the full extent of Bacary Sagna’s injury became clear and the fact that he would be missing the early part of the upcoming season was made public. Sagna suffered a broken leg against Norwich City in Premier league in May this year and is missing the Euros. He is not expected to be fully fit to be back on the pitch before September. Debuchy has filled in for the injured Arsenal right back for the French and has impressed Wenger who has been watching up close during the Euros.

The Lille defender who is aware of the interest in him is reportedly trying to push through a move but refused to be drawn into this before the Euros end.

“Right now, I’m focused on the Euros,” he was quoted as saying by L’Equipe. “I have wishes, but we will discuss them later,” the 26 year old said.

If this move goes through, young star Carl Jenkinson who filled up for the injured Sagna several times last season could go further down the pecking order as Wenger is not sure if the former Charlton boy is ready to make the big jump yet.
