Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that the club cannot stop Bacary Sagna leaving this summer.
As reported by The Guardian, the Gunners manager has revealed that he's waiting for Sagna to get back to him regarding a contract offer.
The full-back is out of contract at the Emirates at the end of the season, and he's been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City in recent time.
If reports are to be believed, the Citizens have offered the Arsenal ace a three year deal at the Etihad.
On the Sagna situation, the Arsenal chief told reporters: "Talks are not progressing. The ball is not in our court any more and he has to come back to us."
It remains to be seen as to whether Sagna will commit his future with Arsenal, but Gunners fans will be hoping they don't lose another star to Manchester City after the likes of Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy have left for them in recent years.
Arsenal's immediate attention, however, will turn to their Premier League clash with Newcastle United on Monday night.
The north London outfit will be desperate to secure all three points against Alan Pardew's side, as they look to secure a place in next year's Champions League.
