Arsenal star's wage demands hold up transfer

Published Add your comment

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna's agent has been approached by Inter Milan as speculation over where the French international will play next season shows no sign of slowing down, with the Metro reporting that the Serie A giants are willing to offer the 31-year-old a three-year deal worth £110,000-a-week.

Sagna has been a model of consistency for Arsenal ever since moving to the Emirates, but that happy marriage could come to an end this summer if the right-back fails to agree fresh terms.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is still confident of extending Sagna's current contract beyond this season, but contract talks have failed to produce an agreement at this stage.

Lucrative offers from across the continent could materialise if Sagna becomes available on a free transfer, with the Metro sharing that Inter have declared their interest and are receptive to the idea of a long-term deal on a healthy salary, something Arsenal have been reluctant to offer experienced players in recent times.

Inter are already chasing deals for Premier League veterans Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra and Sagna is now their latest target, as the Serie A side eye a mass squad overhaul under new ownership ahead of next season.

Arsenal have not given up hope of persuading Sagna that his future should still be in North London though, with negotiations over a new contract due to resume before the end of the month.
