Sagna is expected to leave the Emirates Stadium after failing to agree a new deal.
Contract negotiations with Bacary Sagna have once again hit a wall and Napoli are preparing to swoop for the Arsenal right-back in the summer, according to Goal.
Last season’s Serie A runners-up are keen to strengthen their defence this year with some big names and have also targeted Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Alex and Javier Mascherano of Barcelona.
Sagna’s current contract with the Gunners expires at the end of this campaign and the Frenchman is free to enter talks with other clubs.
The north Londoners had been hoping they could convince the defender to sign a new deal at the Emirates Stadium, but negotiations have gone nowhere.
Sagna turns 31-years-old on February 14 and it was initially thought that if the France international did not stay in England, then he would return to Ligue 1 and join either PSG or AS Monaco.
However, Napoli would also be an attractive prospect due to their rise in prominence in recent years and the likeliness of them playing Champions League football next term.
Sagna was signed by Arsene Wenger from Auxerre in 2007 for £7m and has since gone onto make 265 appearances for the side in all competitions.
This season the Frenchman has been recognised as one of the best full-backs in the Premier League and has contributed towards the team’s fantastic defensive record.
Wenger would have to enter the transfer market to replace Sagna if he were to leave for Italy, as youngster Carl Jenkinson is the only alternative on the right side of defence.
