Arsenal will respond if Sagna leaves - Wenger

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that his club will respond if Bacary Sagna leaves the Emirates at the end of the season, reports The Express.

The French full-back - who is set to feature at this summer's World Cup - is out of contract at the north London outfit at the end of the season, and has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs in recent time. 

If reports are to be believed, Premier League duo Chelsea and Manchester City are both interested in the player's services ahead of the 2014/15 campaign. 

And Wenger has revealed that he can't stop the defender leaving the club, but will have to accept it and move on. 

Speaking to reporters, the Arsenal chief said: "That is not close to be closed.

"I will have to accept it [Sagna leaving] because only he can decide that now.

"If he goes we will accept it and respond."

For now though, Arsenal's immediate attention will turn to ending this Premier League season on a high. The Gunners take on Norwich City, before taking part in the FA Cup final against Hull City. 

The final could represent Sagna's final game in an Arsenal shirt, before he potentially sets his sights on a new challenge.
