NEWCASTLE United right-back Mathieu Debuchy is on the verge of a move to Arsenal, according to a report in France.

French media outlet Infosport claims the 28-year-old is set to join the Gunners as a replacement for Bacary Sagna, who has signed for Manchester City on a free transfer.

Debuchy joined Newcastle in January 2013 from Lille, and became a fans’ favourite at St James’s Park.

However, his future on Tyneside is now looking increasingly uncertain.
