Wenger hints Debuchy could go but rules out Gnabry return

Arsene Wenger has hinted that Mathieu Debuchy could leave Arsenal ahead of next week’s transfer deadline.

The injury-troubled right-back ended last season on loan at Bordeaux and was linked with a number of clubs prior to his latest spell on the sidelines.

Debuchy has returned to training and Gunners boss Wenger said at a press conference on Thursday morning that the player is potentially available for a move.

Wenger said: “It’s gone quiet but I didn’t close the door.

“There is a lot of competition (for places) and Gabriel has been convincing on the right side as well.

“He (Debuchy) is fully fit and available to play, and maybe to have an experience somewhere else.”

Wenger also confirmed that Theo Walcott is back in training after injury and that Carl Jenkinson is yet to agree personal terms with Crystal Palace.

Arsenal recently accepted an offer from Palace for defender Jenkinson but the move has not been completed.

“He has to agree personal terms but I believe at the moment he has not done so yet,” Wenger said.

Wenger added that he has no signings in the pipeline and dismissed reports he is looking to re-sign Serge Gnabry.

Former Gunners winger Gnabry has been linked with a return to the club from Werder Bremen.
