5 Players Arsenal Must Sell In Order To Challenge For The Premier League


2 – Mathieu Debuchy

Again, it’s not a surprise to see Debuchy join this list because his Arsenal days have been numbered ever since he joined the club in 2014.

In the space of three years the Frenchman has made just 22 (TWENTY TWO) appearances for the firs team, with very little impact on each occasion.

Debuchy never lived up to the status that Bacary Sagna left to fill, and with the uprise of Hector Bellerin he was competing against young and fresh legs.

The 31-year-old was welcomed back after recovering from a serious injury picked up in the summer of 2016, but he lasted just 15 minutes in his return against Bournemouth.

Since then it’s been a series of mediocre inclusions in the Under-23’s that hasn’t done him any favours when attempting to approach potential clubs.

His biggest dig came when Arsene Wenger used academy starlet, Ainsley Maitland-Niles in the FA Cup ahead of him – which all but ended his Arsenal career.

He’s contracted at the Gunners until 2019 so we could still make a little bit of money on the defender, who’s valued at around £4million.
