Mathieu Debuchy is reportedly set to arrive in Nice for a medical within the next 48 hours.
- Arsenal to release Debuchy for free this summer
- Debuchy finally looks set to leave
- Right-back set for Nice medical in two day’s time
The 31-year-old has made his position at Arsenal very clear over the past year and since he’s desperate for more game time, it always looked as if he was going to leave this summer.

Finally, Nice are the club to come forward and offer to take him off the Gunners’ hands.
Debuchy has two years left on his current deal with Arsenal but considering he’s definitely surplus to requirements after being left at home while the rest of the squad travel to Australia and China for their pre-season tour, a deal can probably be struck. There’s even talk of the club releasing him.
The Frenchman only made four appearances for Arsenal’s first team last season, totaling 266 minutes.
