After nearly three months out with a shoulder injury, the French defender is nearing a comeback after taking part in a friendly against Brentford on Tuesday
Arsenal full-back Mathieu Debuchy expressed his relief after stepping up his latest injury comeback.
The Frenchman moved to the Emirates Stadium from Newcastle United in July for an initial £8 million (€11m) fee plus add-ons, but has been limited to just 10 Premier League starts due to fitness problems.
Debuchy missed three months earlier this season with an ankle injury before a dislocated shoulder suffered against Stoke City in January saw him spend further time on the sidelines.
It appears as though he is nearing a return to the first team, though, after playing in a 4-0 friendly victory over Brentford on Tuesday in a match that also saw Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Abou Diaby feature.
So happy to be back !! Thank you everyone for your support
