Napoli are monitoring Bacary Sagna's contract situation at Arsenal as the full-back continues to hold talks with the north London club over his future.

The Frenchman has been with Arsenal since 2007 but could well be on his way out of the club.

Sagna is out of contract in the summer and has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium - but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has previously insisted that he is confident that he will sign a new deal.

According to Goal, Napoli are looking to tempt him away from the Gunners at the end of the season as part of a summer spending spree which could also see former Arsenal player Alex Song head to Naples.

Goal add that the Partenopei are also chasing Song's Barcelona team-mate Javier Mascherano.

As it stands, Sagna can hold talks with other clubs and walk away for free in the summer, although talks over a new deal with Arsenal are on-going.

The 31-year-old has been critical of Arsenal's policy of selling their best players in the past, but Sagna revealed last summer that he had no plans to quit the club.

"I enjoy playing for Arsenal," Sagna told the Guardian in July. "I love my team, and I always give my best. I'm still here. Many people were talking about me going back to France but I'm still here and I'm looking forward to a big season with Arsenal.

"Last season was difficult. I only had one year left and people were looking at that and maybe thinking I would leave. But I tried to stay as calm as I could. Now I will work hard in pre-season and have a good season for Arsenal."
