Arsenal right back has been told by that he is free to leave the club before the end of the transfer window, reports the Mirror.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference for the gameĀ against yesterday, Arsene all but confirmed the news:

“What I just want to say is he (Debuchy) is fully fit now and so he is available to play and maybe even to have an experience somewhere else.”

The 31-year-old has been out of action since November after suffering a hamstring injury in the opening minutes of the league match against Bournemouth.

The Mirror reports that the full back has been given permission to search for his next club with a return to France the most likely possibility. Marseille is the player’s likeliest destination.

The club’s manager worked with Debuchy when he was boss at before the Frenchman left to join . French newspaper Le Parisien reported back in late December that Marseille were monitoring the defender’s situation at the Emirates. The Ligue One side could now make their move.
