Arsenal star Bacary Sagna has almost certainly confirmed that he will be leaving the club this summer, after turning down a three-year deal with a lucrative pay rise.

According to the Mirror the Frenchman has decided to reject his club’s latest offer, which reportedly included the significant pay rise he was after, and is now expected to leave following the World Cup. Rumours over Sagna’s future have been a source of concern for Arsenal fans this year, as he’s repeatedly turned down proposals put to him over an extension. However it would now seem that he is determined to seek pastures new, after rebuffing attempts which clearly fall in line with his demands.

The Mirror, citing an Arsenal fan club which met with chief executive Ivan Gazidis, relays that a select group of supporters were personally told that Sagna had rejected terms over a new deal. With a number of clubs, including Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, on the hunt for his signature it could well be that the 31-year-old now ends up moving to whomever offers him the most impressive contract.

The news will not have been taken well by Wenger, as it practically guarantees that he is losing one of the most senior members of his squad.
