The report accredits both Aston Villa and Roma as suitors for the experienced right-back but now Leverkusen have joined the hunt and are cited as favourites to take him on loan.
“Mathieu Debuchy has a choice of three clubs as he is set to leave Arsenal this month on loan. Bayer Leverkusen, Aston Villa and Roma are in the hunt for the right-back,” The Sun claims.
Debuchy has lost his way somewhat at Arsenal, first picking up a season-ending injury last year before being displaced as the club’s number one right-back by Hector Bellerin in the current campaign.
The former Newcastle United star has managed just a handful of appearances this season, a situation which puts him in a vulnerable spot ahead of the European Championships this summer.
The France international will be desperate to play a part in the prestigious event, yet a failure to secure first-team football could jeopardise his chances of making France’s main squad.
The report goes on to say that Debuchy’s preference would be to stay in England; however the only club showing an interest at present is Villa who currently sit at the bottom of the table.
The Villans could certainly offer the right-back first-team football, yet their struggles could end up having a negative effect on the player as they look sure-fire favourites to go down.
