Metro have Arsenal fans sitting up and taking notice here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they note that one of the club’s soon to be out of contract players is set for more contract talks.
Bacary Sagna had been thought to be on his way out of the club, and over pouring a pint, our landlord reminds us that the terms the right back was pining after did not exactly sit well with some Gunners fans.
However, Sagna is hot property, and there are a host of clubs in the Premier League, let alone the rest of Europe who are keen on him.
This is not to mention the fact that Arsene Wenger is a huge fan of the long serving player, and ideally would like to keep him at the Emirates Stadium.
Our punters over by the pool table have a different take on this however, as they think that Sagna is holding the club to ransom.
They believe that the Gunners should stand firm and not increase the wages the Frenchman is currently on too significantly, avoiding to bow to the pressure of a three-year plus deal.
Some of our regulars tell us it may well be time for a change as well, and with a number of young quality right backs around, Wenger may be better looking at them. Everton’s Seamus Coleman, Gooners!?
Would you rather the club kept Sagna at the Emirates Stadium than foraging for replacements? Let us know your thoughts below.
