Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna has admitted he could leave Arsenal after his contract expires in 2014.

It was reported in December that Sagna was considering his future in north London after receiving what he considered an unacceptable contract extension offer from the Gunners.

Sagna has also been vocal in his criticism of Arsenal for letting key players including Robin van Persie and Alex Song leave the club last summer. 

That earned him a reprimand from Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, who is unlikely to be impressed with the 29-year-old’s comments in an interview with AtlantiqueFootballClub.com, in which he admitted he could leave at the end of his current contract.

When asked if he wanted to leave Arsenal to win trophies, Sagna replied: “Honestly I am under contract with Arsenal, and I will see out my contract with the club. 

“After that is a difficult question. Before leaving, because I will leave here one day, I would like to win something with my club. “

“I don’t want to answer yes or no now because in football you never know what will happen."

Sagna also spoke of the importance of losing Van Persie once more, and admitted it was a double-blow that the Dutchman joined Premier League rivals Manchester United.

“He [Van Persie] carried the team on his own last season,” the defender said. “And the fact that he is now with Manchester United, this is huge. 

“To have a player like van Persie makes a huge difference. 

“He is awesome. Some of the things he does are incredible. Since my arrival at Arsenal, he has had a lot of injuries, but still he scored loads of goals.

Arsenal currently sit in 6th place, seven points behind rivals Tottenham in the race for Champions League qualification, although they can close that gap with victory in their game in hand against West Ham tonight.
