Arsenal star to open transfer talks in January

Published Add your comment

Arsenal star Bacary Sagna will begin talks with other clubs in January ahead of a possible summer move away from north London, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims the French international full-back will take up the opportunity to speak with interested parties from January 1st, and decide if his future lies away from the Emirates Stadium.

Sagna is out of contract with the Gunners in the summer, and could sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign team from New Year’s Day.

Arsenal have tried to tie the 30-year-old down to a new deal in north London, and recently offered him an improved two-and-a-half year deal that would keep him with the club until 2016.

The offer from Arsene Wenger did not include a pay rise however, and now Monaco, Galatasaray, Paris Saint-Germain and Fenerbahce are ready to vie for the signature.

Sagna joined Arsenal back in 2007, moving to the Premier League from Auxerre after three seasons as a regular in Ligue 1.

He’s gone on to become one of the Gunners’ most consistent performers, although injuries have hampered his number of appearances in recent seasons.

Whether Arsenal can persuade the 38-cap international to stay at the Emirates Stadium remains to be seen, and Wenger may be forced to begin the search for a new right-back if the signs are not positive in January.
