Earlier this week, the Evening Standard suggested Arsene Wenger is undecided on which right-back to let go of in January.
According to the report, Wenger will allow either Mathieu Debuchy or Carl Jenkinson to depart when the January transfer window opens in just over a week. It’s claimed the Frenchman wants to keep hold of one of the two to give sufficient cover for first-choice Hector Bellerin in the right-back position.
If Jenkinson is put up for loan next month, it’s believed he will draw attention from a few Premier League sides, including West Ham, Swansea and Hull City, and Championship side are also thought to be keen on the 24-year-old.
Meanwhile, Debuchy is currently recovering from a ‘severe’ injury he picked up after just 16 minutes of play in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth last month. However, the French right-back could be up for sale or once again loaned out after a torrid time with injuries and fitness, with interest from France mooted.
So, with that said, which out of the two should Wenger look to get rid of next month – Jenkinson or Debuchy?
