Mathieu Debuchy believes our acquisition of Petr Cech from Chelsea is a massive boost, and may well help us clinch the Premier League title this season, according to Arsenal.com.
We recently secured the services of the 33-year-old Chelsea veteran, and it could prove be one of the most important signings we’ve made in a long time.
Debuchy certainly believes his impact could be a big one, and has tipped us for the title in 2015/16.
“Petr is a very good keeper with massive experience,” he said (via Arsenal.com).
“He has a lot of quality and is a complete goalkeeper.
“I think [Arsenal can challenge for the Premier League] and I hope so too. We have all the chance to win the Premier League.”
Debuchy will also be hoping to see more match time this upcoming season, with the Frenchman spending the majority of the last campaign sidelined with injury.
Hector Bellerin stepped up to replace the 29-year-old, and is unlikely to want to give up his spot without a fight. His emergence last season was unbelievable, and we may well have found our right-back for years to come.
We have fantastic options at right-back at the moment, and that is the kind of depth we need across the pitch if we are to have any hope of challenging for the highest honours.
