ARSENAL star Mathieu Debuchy is in talks with Saint-Etienne over a potential move, according to reports.
The French right-back has struggled to cement his place as the Gunners’ first-choice with Hector Bellerin preferred by boss Arsene Wenger.
And now Telefoot are claiming Debuchy, 32, is ready to end his Emirates nightmare and move to Ligue 1.
After a torried few years, the Frenchman has made the most of opportunties in the Europa League and EFL Cup.
And now he hopes to finally secure a move away after several potential switches collapsed at the last minute.
Debuchy admitted last month he intends to leave in the January transfer window.
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.
