There's been a lot of talk about Mathieu Debuchy for a while. He picked up the Right Back Transfer Target standard after Serge Aurier dropped it trying to take another selfie in an Arsenal shirt. Then he was the frontrunner for a while, and now for a couple of weeks or so he's been On The Verge of signing.

Well, according to media reports (including the Standard here, the first I saw to report it), the actual announcement should be made today. According to one of our favorite Twitter insiders (if that's even a thing):

So yeah, I'm trying not to count my chickens before they're officially announced on Arsenal Dot Com, but it really, really, REALLY seems like this is a deal that should be done if not today, but really soon. Hopefully at some point we can stop doing these "almost there!" posts and actually announce a damn signing. It's been like a week since we've done it, I'm starting to get withdrawal.
