Inter Milan are preparing to make Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna their ‘top target’ for the next summer transfer window, according to the Corriere dello Sport.

Sagna hasn’t played a game for the Gunners this season as yet, but did make a step towards returning by featuring in an under-21 game alongside Jack Wilshere this week.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has used the impressive Carl Jenkinson in place of Sagna this season, and there is no assurance that the Frenchman will step straight back into the side upon his return.

Sagna incurred the wrath of Wenger after he vented his anger at seeing Arsenal’s best players leave the club on a regular basis in September, while his contract runs until the end of next season with no progress made as yet over an extension.

Now Corriere dello Sport say the Arsenal full-back is Inter Milan’s ‘top target’ – however they won’t make a move for him until the summer.

The paper claims that Inter have been monitoring Sagna’s rehabilitation from the broken leg he suffered in Arsenal’s 3-3 draw against Norwich at the Emirates Stadium in May.

The Italian giants will be hoping Sagna doesn’t sign a new deal at the Emirates Stadium, allowing them to negotiate down his price when he has just one year remaining on his contract in the summer.

However Wenger has recently expressed his desire to see Sagna stay with the Gunners, and remains hopeful he will extend his stay with the north London club.
