Mathieu Debuchy and ex-Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna are both on the look-out for new clubs before the transfer window shuts.
Debuchy has 18 months left on his current Arsenal contract and given he’s only made seven starts this season – none of which have been in the Premier League – L’Equipe report the 32-year-old is keen for a move.
Not that this will come as a surprise to anyone – he’s wanted to leave for ages.
Since the right-back’s £12m move from Newcastle in 2014, Debuchy’s only made 30 appearances for the Gunners over all competitions. In fact, he’s spent most of his time in north London sidelined through injury.
Former Gunner Bacary Sagna finds himself in a similar position.
After signing for Manchester City in 2014, he made just 49 starts, which is better than Debuchy but not great.
L’Equipe report the 34-year-old, who was released by City in the summer, just wants playing time.
Despite Debuchy not playing for France since September 2015 and Sagna since October 2016, neither have apparently given up on representing their country at the World Cup this summer.
They both allegedly feel they could be in with a chance to get picked since Les Bleus have so few right-backs.
Considering their respective ages, this will probably be their last chance.
Debuchy has been linked with West Brom and Saint Etienne.
Sagna would be open to a return to Ligue 1.
