Italian giants Inter Milan are reportedly confident of securing a deal for Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna in the summer transfer window, with speculation that the Frenchman will not sign a new contract with the Gunners.

Sagna has 18 months left to run on his current Arsenal deal and Inter would appear to be one of the clubs monitoring his situation at the Emirates Stadium with great interest.

According to The Mirror, there doubts over whether Sagna will stay with Arsenal beyond the terms of his contract and Inter Milan are ready to pounce for the 29-year-old.

Sagna has been one of the most outspoken critics of Arsenal's transfer policy among Arsene Wenger's squad - revealing his frustration at the frequent sale of the club's best players following the departure of Gunners captain Robin van Persie.

The Dutchman left Arsenal with 12 months left on his contract and, it would seem, Sagna could follow the similar path to his former skipper only a year later.

Sagna has had a difficult year at Arsenal having twice suffered a broken leg, while young fullback Carl Jenkinson has excelled in the absence of the France international.

Sagna will turn 30 before the end of the season and, with Wenger often reluctant to keep players 30+ for the long-term, could perhaps see the right-back leave Arsenal, should Inter's reported interest become a reality.
