Arsenal defender Mathieu Debuchy has turned down a move to Galatasaray and is holding out for a move to another London club.

The France international wants to leave the Emirates this summer and is keen to secure a move away from the club in the final days of the transfer window.

Wenger is also prepared to let the defender leave after the pair fell out with each other last season. Debuchy spent the last six months of last season on loan at Bordeaux and would likely leave the Emirates again.

The player’s exit has been delayed by the defensive crisis the Gunners are facing, Wenger is currently focused on signing a defender and may not sanction any exit until he secures a new signing.

At the start of August, reports claimed Arsenal have accepted a loan bid from Galatasaray for Debuchy but Football Insider claims the deal has not materialized because the player prefers to remain in London.

Previous reports had claimed West Ham are considering making a move for the defender and the 31 year old could be waiting for the Hammers to formalize their interest.

The defender could get the opportunity to prove himself in the Premier League again after struggling to make it at the Emirates.

The defender joined Arsenal from Newcastle for £12m in 2014 and has made just 21 appearances for the club.
