WEST BROM look set to give Arsenal outcast Mathieu Debuchy a lifeline, according to reports from France.
After a torried few years, the Frenchman has made all six of his appearances this season in the Europa League and EFL Cup.
French news outlet L’Equipe claim the 32-year-old wants more regular football and could be tempted by a move to The Hawthorns.
Debuchy has played just 13 league games for Arsenal since arriving from Newcastle in 2014.
He has managed to fight his way back into the fringes after Arsene Wenger accused him of lying about a failed move to Manchester United.
But his £70,000-a-week deal is putting off many suitors – including Nice – who Debuchy claims did a medical before failing to get in touch with him.
Last month Debuchy revealed his desire to leave the Emirates.
He 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.”
The former France international could fit the bill perfectly for Alan Pardew’s side who are light on full back options.
The Baggies have also been rumoured to be on the brink of losing defender Jonny Evans to Manchester City this month for £25million.
Though, the Sky Blues will have to battle with Arsenal and Manchester United who are both reportedly interested in signing the Northern Ireland international.
