Arsenal are being linked with a move for Sochaux right-back Sebastien Corchia as a replacement for defender Bacary Sagna.

The Sun claims Paris Saint-Germain have set their sights on the Gunners’ full-back, and will offer £8million to bring the player to the Parc des Princes in the summer.

And, in a move to pre-empt a potential bid, the paper goes on to report that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has already set his sights on £5million-rated Corchia to replace his compatriot at the Emirates Stadium.

Sagna moved to north London from Auxerre in 2007, but has just over a year left on his current deal with the club.

The 30-year-old’s injury problems have not helped progress discussions on a contract extension, with the paper claiming Arsenal want to offer terms similar to his current £60,000 a week agreement.

Corchia, meanwhile, has impressed in Ligue 1 this term, having made the step-up at the Stade Auguste Bonal following a move from Le Mans. 

Wenger has a track record of bringing players to the Premier League from France, and this talented 22-year-old could be the next big import at Arsenal – as Sagna was almost six years ago.
