Arsenal are ready to re-enter contract negotiations with full-back Bacary Sagna, reports Goal.com.
The French international, who has been the subject of interest from French duo Paris-Saint Germain and Monaco, runs out of contract at the Emirates at the end of the season, but could now stay in north London.
With the likes of Inter Milan also interested in the player's services, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger seems determined to keep the star at the club.
And after previous failed attempts at negotiating a new deal with the club, there's increasing confidence from within the Arsenal hierarchy that the services of Sagna can be secured.
With Arsenal flying high in the Premier League table, the 30-year-old, who is currently on a salary of £60,000-a-week at the Emirates, could finally end the rumours about his future.
Sagna has been in fine form for Arsenal this season and Wenger will be hoping a deal can be signed in the near future.
