Debuchy told RMC Sport: “I want to leave, to find a new challenge in January.

“The fact I’m playing well will give me opportunities.

“We’ll see if there are good opportunities in the transfer window. I’m open.”

Debuchy has played just 13 league games for Arsenal since arriving from Newcastle in 2014.
