Arsenal boss concedes that Gunners star is on his way

sagnaThe Sun certainly has Arsenal fans scowling here in the Football Transfer Tavern despite the free nibbles on offer today.

This is because of the claim that Bacary Sagna will be leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer when his contract expires.

The French right back is highly sought-after and a host of clubs both in England and abroad have expressed an interest in giving him the money, length of contract and indeed signing-on fee he desires.

We thought that given the delay in any formal announcement from Sagna, not to mention the prospect of winning an FA Cup this term and Champions League football to look forward to next season, the defender may be persuaded to stay at the North London club.

However, according to Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, this is certainly not on the cards, with the Frenchman sure that Sagna will depart despite the offers to stay at the Emirates Stadium.

This is despite the player claiming he will only be focusing on international football for the foreseeable future and will then decide just what to do next season.

We think Wenger’s money would be best spent on bringing in a new, younger right back for the Gunners. Perhaps Calum Chambers or Lukasz Piszczek?

Arsenal fans. How gutted will you be to see Sagna turn out for the likes of Manchester City or Chelsea next season? Let us know your thoughts below.
