Sagna staying at Arsenal and eyeing Premier League challenge

Bacary Sagna has said he has no desire to leave Arsenal this summer, according to Sky Sports, despite the defender entering the final year of his contract and attracting attention from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.

I enjoy playing for Arsenal, Sagna told the Guardian. “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,” the full-back added.

Sagna continued: “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.

The 30-year-old has suffered two broken legs in less than two years and admitted the strenuous recovery process left him physically weakened, especially when he had to do it twice in quick succession. But he believes he is close to his best and that Arsenal can launch a title challenge in the coming campaign.

I believe that we can challenge for the title with a couple of good signings, Sagna said. “We beat great teams last year, we managed to be one of the best teams in the second half of the season and if we can be consistent for the whole season, I believe we can be successful.

We just have to find consistency and the belief to get success. Every team is strengthening and we can strengthen, too, but it’s more about us caring on the pitch and showing the commitment. That will take us a long way.
