Arsenal star set for Serie A exit talks

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio has travelled to London today with a view to talking terms with Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna's representatives over a bosman summer switch to Serie A, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Sagna's long-term future remains very much open to debate, with Arsenal so far failing to persuade the French international that he should sign fresh terms and stay at the Emirates next season.

The 31-year-old is believed to want a new a three-year contract worth £90,000-a-week, a deal which looks unlikely to be offered when you consider Arsenal's stance towards players in the Autumn of their careers during Arsene Wenger's time in charge.

Inter are just one of the clubs looking to take advantage and land an experienced French international for free, as the Serie A giants mount a major rebuilding operation under new owners.

Gazzetta have this morning reported that Inter are confident of persuading Sagna that a summer switch to the San Siro in his best interests, although Arsenal have not given up hope of keeping their longest-serving first-team star at this stage.

If Sagna does opt for a longer contract at Inter he could form a partnership of considerable Premier League experience alongside current Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic, who looks all set to confirm a summer switch to the San Siro before the end of the season.
