Arsenal regular confirms rumours surrounding summer exit

Published Add your comment

Arsenal star Bacary Sagna has dropped the biggest hint yet that he is destined for the exit door, amidst speculation he is set to be replaced.

According to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, the French right-back has refused to deny rumours that this will be his last season at the Emirates by openly admitting that the chances of him leaving on a free remain a distinct possibility.

Signed in 2007 from Auxerre, Sagna has grown to become a mainstay in the Gunners side but has refused to pen a new deal with the club despite the fact that his contract is up at the end of the season.

Rumours have suggested the France international is looking for a new challenge in his career, and both Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain have been heavily linked with moves for him.

And although he did concede that he was still trying to negotiate with Arsenal, the 30-year-old has admitted that he could leave this year.

"Although I am negotiating the renewal with Arsenal I feel good here, I like everyone at Arsenal and I hope that the negotiations have a good outcome.

"If I leave at zero cost? It is a possibility. But I love this club and I hope to win a trophy here. But it is true that Arsenal have lost many good players, almost an entire team since 2007."

Reports have been circulating lately suggesting that Arsene Wenger is on the look out for a potential replacement for his star full-back, with the likes of Everton's Seamus Coleman tipped to join the Premier League leaders.
