Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims to be “confident” that Bacary Sagna will extend his stay with the club, although doubts remain about the future of the full-back with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Sagna remains a regular in Wenger’s first-choice Arsenal XI but there have been reports that the France international may choose to return to Ligue 1 with either of the division’s mega-spending duo Paris Saint-Germain or Monaco.

Wenger, though, is calm about the situation of Sagna and is content to accept whatever step the 31-year-old chooses to take in his career, with the defender having been an excellent servant for Arsenal during seven seasons at the Emirates Stadium.

"I'm confident Sagna will stay but we will accept his decision and go with it,” Wenger told reporters at his Friday press conference ahead of Arsenal’s meeting with Manchester City on Saturday evening.

Arsenal have confirmed a whole raft of new contracts for established players of late, with Per Mertesacker, Aaron Ramsey and Santi Cazorla all have recently put pen to paper on extended deals with the club.

But it is still unclear if Sagna will decide likewise and re-establish his commitment to Arsenal, with more sizeable contracts available should he pursue a free transfer to PSG, Monaco or either Galatasaray.
