Debuchy ‘Undergoes Arsenal Medical Ahead’ Of £8m Move – Reports
It appears our pursuit of Mathieu Debuchy has taken a huge step closer to completion as according to reports today, the defender has completed a medical in London after an £8m deal was agreed with Newcastle.
The France international has emerged as Arsene Wenger key target in his search for a replacement for Bacary Sagna and speculation intensified over the weekend that we were closing in on his signature.
It looks like things have now progressed as Goal are claiming that Debuchy was in London on Monday where he completed his medical after we agreed to pay Newcastle £8m up front, with the deal supplemented by additional add ons.
The 28-year-old is now expected to become our first signing of the summer when the formalities of the deal are concluded, which could coincide with the launch of next seasons PUMA kit this Thursday.
And Debuchy might not be the only deal announced this week as Goal, like several media outlets, also claim that we are on the verge of sealing a £32m deal for Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez.
Personal terms are understood to have been agreed in principal after the attacker rejected the chance to join Liverpool. The only worry now is Juventus finding the money to match our offer and potentially hijacking the deal, but that seems unlikely at this late stage.
So barring any major hiccups, we should have two superb new signings to celebrate over the coming days. Both players will be excellent additions, but understandably most fans will be particularly excited should, as expected, Sanchez conclude his move to the Emirates.
We should be in for an exciting few days Gooners…..
