Defender proud to be linked with Parc des Princes outfit.
Bacary Sagna has admitted he could leave Arsenal and says he is ‘proud’ to be linked with Ligue 1 champions PSG.
The 30-year-old’s future at the Emirates Stadium is in doubt after he reached stalemate in contract negotiations with the club.
The France international has just one year remaining on his current deal and has been linked with both PSG and newly-promoted Monaco, both of whom have money to burn this summer.
The former Auxerre right-back insists he is focussed on the Gunners for the time being but admitted he is keeping his options open.
“Of course it makes me proud to read PSG are interested. They are a very attractive club,” Sagna is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“Personally I’ve not been approached by PSG. I don’t know if they have contacted my agent or if these are rumours.
“At Arsenal, in the dressing room they tease me every day telling me I will leave to play at PSG, but it is speculation.
“I don’t know what is going to happen. I could very well extend my contract here in London but equally I could leave at the end of the season. I only have one year left on my contract. We will see.
“At the moment I am fully focused on Arsenal. I don’t know what will happen this summer.
“I have to see the directors again regarding an extension to my contract. Monaco would be a new challenge. I don’t close any door to PSG, Monaco or Arsenal.”
