Arsenal contract rebel targeted by title rivals

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has become a shock transfer target for Premier League rivals Manchester City, with the Daily Star reporting that the French international's uncertain future has prompted a title rival to take a serious interest.

Sagna's current deal with Arsenal expires at the end of the season, with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger unable to convince the 30-year-old to sign a new two-year contract offered in the past few weeks.

That stance has led the right-back to be consistently linked with Monaco, who the Daily Star believe have offered a whopping three-year deal worth £120,000-a-week plus a staggering signing fee of around £10m spread across the length of the contract, meaning the total package on the table amounts to £38m.

City are undeterred by Monaco's offer though and believe they can make Sagna the latest player to swap the Emirates for the Etihad in search of silverware this summer, following the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor, Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri and Kolo Toure.

Wenger is not ready to admit defeat in his efforts to convince Sagna that he should stay in North London for an eighth season though, but interest from European giants including Galatasaray, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain means he faces a fierce fight to keep a key component of a vastly-improved back four.
