Juventus reject rumours linking them with Arsenal's Mathieu Debuchy

Published Add your comment

Serie A champions Juventus are not interested in signing Arsenal right-back Mathieu Debuchy, Sky Sports have revealed.

It emerged yesterday that the Italian side were considering a shock January bid for the Frenchman, who is out of favour at the Emirates Stadium, but those reports have now been dismissed.

Debuchy has fallen down the pecking order in north London thanks to the development and rise of young Spaniard Hector Bellerin, and since returning from injury, the Frenchman has been unable to win his spot back in the first-team.

The 30-year-old was sidelined with a serious shoulder injury last season, and whilst he was away, Bellerin made the right-back spot his own with a series of top-notch performances.

With Arsene Wenger firmly favouring the Spaniard, Debuchy is worried about his status in the national set-up, especially with the European Championships taking place in France this summer.

Didier Deschamps left Debuchy out of his recent squad due to a lack of first-team football, and the Arsenal right-back is tempted to leave the club in the New Year in order to get some first-team football.

And whilst the Old Lady are in the market for a new right-back after regular star Stephane Lichtsteiner suffered from a cardiac issue, they have ruled out any move for Debuchy.

It's believed Juventus haven't even considered who they will look to sign in January as of yet, and they will only make a decision once the transfer window opens up.
