Metro seem to be interesting Arsenal fans today in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The publication have claimed that finally, after months of speculation, Bacary Sagna will be leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer.
We had thought that after Arsene Wenger made a public plea for the defender to stay, not to mention the fact that it became clear his future had not yet been decided, there could well be a last minute reprieve.
However according to the defender himself, that will not be the case.
He claimed: “I’m out of contract, as everyone knows. I still consider myself as an Arsenal player at present.
“But actually we had a small problem to agree [with the club], and I don’t think stay at Arsenal at the end of the season.”
There is no shortage of suitors for the French right back and we think that given Sagna’s preference to stay in the Premier League, it could well be an interesting summer in terms of a fight for the player – who is of course available on a free transfer.
Do you think that Sagna will stay in England with it being clear that he will be leaving Arsenal? Let us know your thoughts below.
