Debuchy set for Arsenal move

Newcastle right-back Mathieu Debuchy is set to have a medical at Arsenal after the Magpies accepted a £7.8m offer for the French international.

Arsenal made Debuchy their no.1 target last week following the departing of Bacary Sagna to Manchester City. French media claim that the fee could rise to around £12million with bonuses, but The Gunners will feel like they have grabbed a bargain when the deal goes through as expected.

Newcastle are already out looking for a replacement, and are in talks with Feyenoord over Daryl Janmaat and Man City’s Micah Richards. Debuchy is now free to sort out a transfer after France were knocked out of the World Cup by Germany on Friday, and yesterday he removed the words ‘Newcastle player’ from his bio on Twitter.
