Bacary Sagna has caused much controversy over recent months at the Emirates, having rejected two separate contract offers from Arsenal.
The Frenchman is apparently looking for a £100,000-per-week-salary as a reward for his loyalty to the club, however according to reports, Arsenal are not willing to meet these demands. Although a final deal has been prepared in an attempt to keep him with Arsenal for two more years with the option of an extra 12 months, the 31-year-old still looks set to leave in the summer, after admitting to friends that he isn't going to sign the deal.
Big names such as Galatasaray, Inter Milan, Monaco, PSG and Manchester City are all reportedly interested in his services, with City being the one of the clubs mostly heavily linked with the right-back. However according to reports, Fenerbahce look the favourites to sign him after suggesting that they would be willing to pay him his preferred wage packet.
The Gunners will be looking for a direct replacement for the Frenchman, with the likes of Everton's Seamus Coleman and Southampton's Callum Chambers at the top of the transfer list.
Sagna joined the Gunners from Auxerre in July 2007 for an undisclosed fee. Leaving this summer will end a successful seven year career in north London for the Frenchman, who has made over 250 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions.
