West Bromwich Albion have reportedly identified Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy as a possible transfer target during the January window.

With the Baggies failing to win a game in the Premier League since the second weekend of the campaign, head coach Alan Pardew is under pressure to strengthen his squad at The Hawthorns.

Pardew is expected to focus his attention on the final third but according to L’Equipe, a move could be made for Debuchy.

The France international has made six starts for the Gunners this season, but those appearances have come in either the EFL Cup or Europa League and boss Arsene Wenger has previously indicated that he may be willing to part ways with the 32-year-old.

Debuchy still has 18 months remaining on his contract, but Wenger is unlikely to stand in his way should West Brom make a realistic bid for the player.
