Arsenal could be braced for a January exit from France international right back Mathieu Debuchy, after he lost his place in the starting line-up to Hector Bellerin after being ruled out through injury back in April.

The Daily Express reported the story

Arsenal also have Calum Chambers, who is naturally a right back, and so Wenger could allow the former Newcastle player to leave the Emirates. But Debuchy said he considered leaving this summer before staying to fight for his place in the Arsenal side, and he could yet force his way back in. 

He made just 11 Premier League starts last season after signing for £12 million as a replacement for Man City bound Bacary Sagna. If he fails to break through then Debuchy could reconsider his options and make an exit in January. One big factor in fighting for his place at Arsenal is Champions League football, and with League Cup and FA Cup action, and Wenger's famed squad rotation in those competitions, Debuchy could have an opportunity to impress in the not too distant future.
