Arsenal are yet to respond to reports that they are about to sign French full-back Bakary Sagna from Auxerre and allow Freddie Ljungberg to leave for Fiorentina.

French sports daily L´Equipe claim Sagna, 24, is currently in London and ready to complete a medical once the two clubs agree on a fee, while reports from Italy indicate that Fiorentina are confident of beating off rival Premiership interest from Sunderland and Manchester City for Sweden midfielder Ljungberg.

In June, Sagna, seen as a long-term replacement for Willy Sagnol at right-back in the France national side, was called up to the squad to face Ukraine and Georgia but has still to win his first cap.
