Debuchy fears for France career as he ponders Arsenal future

Arsenal full-back Mathieu Debuchy is reportedly considering leaving the Gunners in search of regular first team football after he was left out of the French squad for friendly matches against Armenia and Denmark next week.


Debuchy has lost his place as Arsene Wenger's first-choice right-back after ankle and shoulder injuries derailed his 2014/15 Premier League campaign and has now relinquished his spot in Didier Deschamps' France squad ahead of next year's home European Championships.

The 30-year-old had considered departing the Emirates Stadium during the summer, but instead opted to stay and fight for his place.

However, the Telegraph is reporting Debuchy is revaluating his decision and may look to find a new club during the January window.

Speaking last month, Debuchy said: "In the long-term, if this situation continues it could become tricky."

"He [Wenger] knows I'm worried though because there's an important deadline at the end of the season. It's a must to hold down a first team place. It's clear. To be effective on the field you need game time."
