Sagna is still no nearer to signing a new deal.
Contract talks between Bacary Sagna and Arsenal have been ongoing for some time, but with the defender’s deal running out next summer things look unlikely to be resolved.
Sagna is currently paid around £60,000-a-week by the Gunners, but the club are unwilling to raise that offer and with lucrative deals from both Manchester City and Real Madrid having been rejected by the Frenchman, things don’t look promising.
A number of clubs have been alerted to the right-back’s impending departure, with Fenerbahce, Galatasaray, AS Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain all on the hunt.
The 30-year-old is likely to favour a return to the full-back’s home nation, especially with the rise in European stature that both Monaco and PSG are currently enjoying.
This would leave Arsene Wenger with something of a dilemna, as only youngster Carl Jenkinson is available as a replacement at the Emirates Stadium at the moment.
The manager is likely to want to bring in more reinforcement for Sagna – a player that has been first choice at the club since 2007.
The France international has struggled with injury during that time, but has impressed once again this campaign when playing; although is currently out with a hamstring problem.
Sagna is now one of the longest serving members of the squad and provides vital experience to the plethora of younger players.
Wenger has already told chief scout Steve Rowley to begin the search for a new right-back, with the first port of call being the under-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirates.
