According to the latest reports, Arsenal have sealed a deal for Newcastle United right back Mathieu Debuchy and the medical is set to happen this week. Arsenal will officially announce the deal once the medical gets done.
Following the departure of veteran defender Bacary Sagna to Manchester City, Arsenal were linked with many names like Seamus Coleman, Serge Aurier and others. But it looks like Debuchy is the man to replace his French counterpart.
L’Equipe suggests that transfer fee involved in this deal is around £7.9million. The fee may rise upto £12million with extra bonus clauses and add-ons.
The 28 year old French international may not be as explosive in attack as other Arsenal targets like Coleman or Aurier, but he has balanced attacking and defensive skills which will add good stability to this Arsenal side.
Another bargain signing from Arsenal negotiators.
