Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna could join Chelsea or even rivals Tottenham at the end of the season, according to reports.
The 31-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and as yet hasn't put pen to paper on a new deal.
Previous reports have suggested that the Arsenal star could be on his way to Inter Milan in the summer, having turned down two separate offers from the Gunners.
However now the Daily Mail report that talks last week with Inter didn't reach a conclusion, and now Chelsea or Tottenham could be ready to pounce.
Citing sources in Italy, they claim that Sagna could opt to sign for Chelsea - or even rivals Tottenham because the full-back is settled in London and wants to stay put, but may not get the three-year contract he wants from Arsenal.
Galatasaray also retain an interest in Sagna, who could also agree a new deal with the Gunners.
The paper quote a source as saying: "The impression that came out of the talks was that Sagna and his wife are settled in London and want to stay there.
"He is hoping Arsenal come up with an acceptable offer, but there is interest from other Premier League clubs. We are hearing Chelsea and Tottenham."
If Sagna were to spring a surprise and join Tottenham, he would be the first player to cross the north London divide since William Gallas signed for Spurs in 2011.
No player has signed for Chelsea from Arsenal since Ashley Cole's acrimonious switch in 2005.
