Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said Friday that Debuchy will have exploratory surgery on his ankle to determine the severity of his injury and if he does need an additional operation, he could be sidelined up to three months.

If Debuchy avoids an additional surgery, he could return in six weeks, but even that it quite a ways off. Calum Chambers is expected to get a majority of the starts in Debuchy's absence.

Debuchy could miss up to two months due to the ankle injury he suffered in Arsenal's Premier League match against Manchester City on Saturday, Le Parisien reports.

Manager Arsene Wenger said after that match "It does not look too good," regarding the injury, a big blow to the Arsenal back line. He suffered the injury when it appeared his boot got caught on the pitch, and he will undergo additional scans when the swelling decreases. He is almost assured to miss time, with Calum Chambers the likely replacement in the starting XI.

Debuchy was sent off after receiving two yellow cards in Wednesday's 1-0 victory over Besiktas.

Fortunately for Debuchy's fantasy owners, the ban won't apply to his eligibility for league play. The attack-minded right back should therefore remain in the starting XI this Sunday versus Leicester City.

Debuchy has joined Arsenal on a long-term contract, the club's official website confirms.

Debuchy arrives in North London from Newcastle, who signed him from Ligue 1 side Lille in January of 2013. France's first-choice right-back at this summer's World Cup, Debuchy will slot in Arsenal's defense to replace countryman Bacary Sagna, who signed with Manchester City this summer. The move figures to boost Debuchy's fantasy value, as Arsenal conceded the fourth-fewest goals last season and often deploy their full-backs along the flanks in the attacking third.

Arsenal are expected to announce completion of Debuchy's transfer from Newcastle on Thursday, according to the Daily Mail.

Newcastle has completed the signing of Darl Janmaat, which clears the way for Debuchy to finalize an agreement with Arsenal. The defender will slot into the vacancy Bacary Sagna left when he departed the club.

Arsenal is moving closer to completing a transfer deal for Debuchy after the French back flew to England to complete a medical exam with the Gunners on Monday, reports the Daily Mail.

France was knocked out of the World Cup by Germany, which enabled the player to return to England and advance discussions. Debuchy would provide cover for the departing Bacary Sagna.

Debuchy is discussing a possible move to Arsenal, according to BBC Sport.

The Gunners have a back-line opening after Bacary Sagna signed with Manchester City, making Debuchy an interesting target. The BBC reports that Newcastle are seeking around 10 million for the France international.

Debuchy (groin) came on for an injured Papiss Cisse in the 21st minute of Saturday's 1-2 loss to Swansea City.

Debuchy had missed more than a month with his groin injury, last playing for the French national team on March 5. The Newcastle defense has really struggled lately, and it isn't likely to get better next week against Arsenal at the Emirates.
