Serie A side Inter could exploit the contract impasse between Arsenal and Bacary Sagna by making a move for the France international at the end of the Premier League season, the
Sagna’s contract expires in 2014 and thus far a new deal has not been agreed, with Inter of the belief that if Sagna does not sign fresh terms by next summer he will be made available to sale by Arsene Wenger in an effort to avoid losing the player on a free transfer, with Sagna also said to be keen to leave the Emirates Stadium.
The 29-year-old has previously been vocal in his discontent with life at the Gunners, criticising the club’s transfer policy after the summer saw the departures of Robin van Persie to Manchester United and Alex Song to Barcelona. Wenger reacted by publically condemning Sagna for speaking out of turn.
Arsenal have said they hope to agree a contract extension with Sagna but the Mirror believes the club could look to capitalise on interest from either Inter or Paris Saint-Germain if the defender does not put pen to paper.
