The Premier League side expect to lose Debuchy to Arsenal in the coming months after the Gunners had a £7.9million bid accepted by Newcastle. After recruiting Siem de Jong from Ajax this week, Newcastle are now weighing up a move for Van Rhijn, according to the Evening Chronicle. However, the publication says that the Magpies may have to battle it out with Chelsea and Everton for the right-back – with both sides having kept an eye on the player over the past 12 months.
