Liverpool make substantial offer to sign Arsenal star

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool appear to have joined the race to sign Bacary Sagna, with the Reds having made him a substantial offer according to Sky Sports Italia journalist Gianluca di Marzio.

Right-back Sagna is out of contract at the end of the season and Di Marzio suggests that Inter Milan are in pole position for his signature should he choose to leave the Premier League but it is now up to the player whether he wishes to stay in England or not in light of Liverpool's offer.

31-year-old Sagna joined Arsenal from French outfit Auxerre in 2007 and has become a stalwart of Arsene Wenger's defence, making over 200 appearances for the Gunners during his seven-year stint at the Emirates Stadium.

Reports last week suggested that Arsenal were preparing a third contract offer for the experienced France international after he had rejected two initial proposals, but that interest from the likes of wealthy Ligue 1 side Monaco and Turkish champions Galatasaray - both of whom are supposedly willing to offer Sagna a four-year-deal - was holding things up.

Chelsea and Manchester City have both shown an interest in Sagna, but it looks like Liverpool are keen to persuade him to come to Anfield.

Liverpool - who currently sit fourth in the Premier League table after enjoying an impressive 2013/14 campaign to date - are bidding to make their long-awaited return to the Champions League and must also be considered as title contenders given that they are just four points adrift of leaders Chelsea.

It is unclear whether Sagna is tempted by such an offer to remain in England but move to one of Arsenal's direct rivals, but Liverpool could certainly do with improving their full-back options this summer with the likes of Glen Johnson and Jose Enrique having missed large parts of the season through injury.
