Arsenal star reveals January exit offer

Published Add your comment

Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna has conceded that his long-term future remains up in the air as negotiations with Gunners chiefs over a new contract continue, with the French international revealing he has at least one offer to go elsewhere next month.

Sagna's current deal at the Emirates expires in June, which means the French international will be available on a free transfer at the end of the campaign.

The 30-year-old has been a mainstay of the Arsenal defence for more than six seasons after signing from Auxerre in 2007, but has admitted that he still needs some convincing to stay in North London beyond the summer.

He told The Mirror: "I was upset, angry when players left. If we had them today, it would make a massive difference. Since 2007, a very competitive team left. I would love to win trophies with this club, it's a club I love so much but something is missing.

"I've still got six months on my contract with Arsenal. We are in negotiations. It's an option to go somewhere in January but I always had a good relationship with Arsenal.

"I've been playing there for seven years and i hope we will end up on something good. First of all I want to finish champion because we have got a good opportunity to do it this year and after we will see."

Sagna has seen Arsenal consistently sell their best players during his time at the Emirates, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie and Samir Nasri all leaving the club in search of glory elsewhere.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is thought to remain confident of persuading Sagna to stay put, although the Frenchman is also still mulling over a contract offer of his own.
