Sagna wants to be given a new £100,000-a-week deal.
Arsenal have finally been set a target by contract rebel Bacary Sagna, with the right-back demanding £100,000-a-week to stay in north London, according to the Mirror.
The Frenchman’s current £60,000-a-week deal expires in the summer and despite several negotiations, no extension had managed to be agreed.
Sagna has been in great form for the Gunners this term and many think the club should simply give into the demands to ensure the 31-year-old stays at the Emirates Stadium.
However, officials for the side are only prepared to give the France international a two-year deal – one year less than the defender wants – and wages of closer to the current £60,000-a-week contract.
This differing in opinions has led a host of clubs to show interest in Sagna, with AS Monaco, Galatasaray, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain all looking to sign the full-back.
Arsene Wenger is keen to keep the stalwart at the Emirates, with the French star being one of the longest serving current squad members having first arrived from Auxerre in 2007.
Since then Sagna has played 269 times for the team and is a vital part of the solid defensive unit that has been created this term.
However, negotiations are now out of Wenger’s hands and with Gala having already tabled a £100,000 four-year offer of their own, keeping the defensive ace could prove to be difficult.
