Bordeaux Drop Interest In Arsenal Defender Over Financial Concerns


French club Bordeaux have given up on signing Mathieu Debuchy from Arsenal this summer after concluding he is too expensive.

Debuchy spent the second half of last season on loan at the Ligue 1 side, though saw injuries disrupt his progress and missed out on a spot in France's Euro 2016 squad as a result.

Debuchy's path to a regular starting spot at Arsenal is blocked by Hector Bellerin and Bordeaux had been toying with the idea of bringing him back for the 2016/17 campaign.

But according to French daily Sud Ouest, Bordeaux have concluded that even if they could reduce Debuchy's wage demands, the cost of the deal would still be too high.

It is unclear whether the Frenchman wishes to stay at the Emirates Stadium this summer given an expected lack of first team football with the Gunners.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger swooped to sign Debuchy from Newcastle United in the summer of 2014.

Soon to turn 31 years old, the French defender faces a battle to push for a spot in the Arsenal side for the forthcoming campaign and as a result may consider leaving the Emirates Stadium.
