Mathieu Debuchy had a good game last night for France in their 1-1 against World Champions Spain at the Vicente Calderon Stadium, in Madrid, and we really hoped that Newcastle could have signed this player in the summer.
Mathieu Debuchy – moving to Newcastle in January?
The news today is that Arsenal may be interested in the French International, but we wonder why that would be true with Carl Jenkinson having been impressive so far this season, as he has deputized for the injured Frenchman Bacary Sagna, whom Debuchy has replaced in the French side.
The news is being reported by TalkSPORT, and it seems that both Newcastle and Arsenal were represented in Madrid last night.
As we said, we’d be surprised if Arsenal were interested in Debuchy, but we wouldn’t put it past Newcastle to go in for the Frenchman again in January, and maybe have better luck enticing his club, Lille, to let him go.
The 27-year-old looked a very good player last night, and he would fit perfectly into the Newcastle side.
And with Danny Simpson’s contract running out next summer, it could be a wise move for Newcastle to bring Mathieu through the door in January.
We hope that’s what happens.
