Writing on social networking site Twitter, Arsenal legend Ian Wright has urged the club to sell Mathieu Debuchy and bring Carl Jenkinson back into the first team fold.

Debuchy is widely expected to leave the Emirates this summer after falling down the pecking order at the club.

He is currently second choice to Hector Bellerin, and spent the second half of this past season on loan at French side Bordeaux.

He has not hidden his desire leave, openly commenting several times that he wants to leave Arsenal this summer.

That has not impressed Wright, who has hit out at the player on Twitter and called for the club to replace him with Carl Jenkinson.

Jenkinson has certainly done his chances of first team football no harm with his performances at West Ham last season.

He largely impressed, and certainly did enough to prove he would be an able deputy for Hector Bellerin at Arsenal.

However, that taste of regular action is sure to have made him want more in future and there is every chance he could also seek an exit to secure it.
