Arsenal desperate not to lose key star

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to convince full-back Bacary Sagna that his future lies at the Emirates, despite speculation that the Frenchman is looking to leave the club.

Rumours have suggested that Sagna will leave Arsenal in the summer when his current contract expires, as he is seeking a fresh challenge in his career.

The Express reports however that Wenger is desperate to keep hold of the experienced 30-year-old, and will do everything he can to sway the star’s decision in favour of staying with the club.

Sagna has been repeatedly linked with a move to France, with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco both keeping an eye on the situation.

But regardless of the fact that the signs point towards the Frenchman ending his seven-year stay in north London, Wenger believes he can keep hold of him.

"We are not far. I will push very hard to get it done, yes," Wenger said.

"We cannot stop him from doing that (signing a pre-contract agreement with another club). "But for me, that is not a problem because when you are a professional football player, you do until the last day your best. If you don't do that, you are not professional for me.

"I don't question Sagna's commitment until the last day of his contract."

Sagna has been an important part of the Arsenal setup in recent years, and it would no doubt be considered a blow if they were to lose him for nothing at the end of the current season.
