According to reports in the French media, West Ham are interested in both Gregory van der Wiel and Mathieu Debuchy as they search to find an experienced right-back this summer.
Arsenal’ Debuchy spent the second half of last season on loan at Bordeaux after losing his place to Hector Bellerin at the Emirates and it is claimed Arsene Wenger has no plans to keep him on next season. Debuchy still has three years to run on his contract with the Gunners but Arsenal are willing to put the former Newcastle man up for sale on the cheap. According to France Football, Lyon are leading the chase for Debuchy and are preparing a bid of around £5m for the 30-year-old.
Gregory van der Wiel will leave Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain after the Coupe de France final against Marseille on Saturday. The Netherlands international was expected to call time on his four-year spell in the French capital at the end of the season, when his contract is due to expire.
And PSG announced on Tuesday that the 28-year-old will depart the club after their clash with Marseille at the Stade de France.
“After four seasons with the club, Netherlands international defender Gregory van der Wiel will leave Paris Saint-Germain,” the club said on their official website as part of a lengthy tribute to his performances for the club.
Van der Wiel, who joined from Ajax in 2012, has won four Ligue 1 titles, three Coupe de la Ligue trophies and the Coupe de France during his time in France.
He has been linked with a move to Serie A champions Juventus, as well as AC Milan and Inter.
