Done Deal: Arsenal seal first major signing of the season


Arsenal have secured their first major signing of the summer, after sealing a deal for Newcastle United defender Mathieu Debuchy. 

According to report from The Times, the French right-back, who is expected to fill the void left by Bacary Sagna, has had completed a medical before completing a £7.9m move from Newcastle.

Debuchy joined The Magpies in the January transfer window of 2013, where he signed a five year contract until the summer of 2018. The deal hasn’t been officially announced yet, but The Times reckons it is as good as done.

The Gunners are also lining up a sensational move for Barcelona’s world class winger Alexis Sanchez and are hoping to complete his signing by the start of next week.

The deal is very close to happening, with Arsenal are in final discussions with Barcelona about the payment schedule for Sanchez. The 25-year-old will almost double the £75,000 a week he earns at the Catalan club while his representatives are likely to have talks in London within next few days. 

Sanchez impressed everyone with his virtuoso performances in the World Cup and no doubt will add enough quality to the Arsenal side.

  1. Arsenal.trying tu make me an the rest of our fans happy its à good news and premiership & UEAFA see à heaven of football in 2014_2015 season

  2. I would be overwelmed if Alexis completes his proposed deal to Arsenal & expect such from the likes of Lars Bender or Sami Khedira, Antoine Griezmann or Juan Cuadrado & a backup keeper would be oh. Kudos

  3. Thats a good move for Alexis Sanchez with the likes of Santi Carzorla, Ozil, Ramsey, Arsenal’s midfield has no problem and if i were Wenger, Theo Walcott will play in the center as a striker cuz of his wonderful play in Arsenal’s Newcastle United match in their 7-3 thrashing. Then Alexis Sanchez to the right wing and Podolski to the left

  4. Typical blogging. Inaccurate and based purely on speculation.
    Have they sealed their first signing, or are they about to?
    Is it a done deal or as good as done?
    Is it actually 7.9 million or more, or does it include another player?

  5. Alexis to arsenal will be a great move and it will help the arsenal attach for sure….go arsenal go

  6. Good news, hope we complete Sanchez deal and add a defending midfielder plus a defender and a Loic Remy to compliment the squad

  7. Delay is dangerous!!!!! Wenger make this quick and let it happen!!!!! Men!!!!! I can’t wait to see this guys in red and white….. Up gunners!

  8. I think with all these good signings, if true, means we are battle ready 4 D 2014/15 season. Hope they are all true cos i do nt trust wenger
