Arsenal Set To Complete The Transfer Of French Star In January

Arsenal could be set to lose one of their stars when the transfer window opens in January, according to reports.

According to Football Italia, Arsenal star Mathieu Debuchy could set for a shock transfer away from the Emirates Stadium, with Italian giants Juventus keen on acquiring the services of the former Newcastle man.

The 2014/2015 UEFA Champions League finalist are targeting the France international as a replacement for Stephan Lichtsteiner who was ruled out of action following a cardiac surgery recently.

Lichtsteiner is reportedly set for a six month spell on the sidelines, and the Italian Champions have turned to Debuchy, who joined Arsenal in the Summer of 2014, as his replacement in January.

Debuchy would certainly fancy his options outside north London according to reports, after the 30-year-old right-back fell down the pecking order at the Emirates, due to injury and the rise to prominence of youngster Hector Bellerin.
