Ahead of Arsenal’s crucial Premier League fixture with Manchester City, the Gunners camp can rejoice already. Bacary Sagna is set to sign a new two-year contract extension with the North Londoners, as reported by Daily Mirror’s John Cross, who is closely connected with the club.
The 30-year-old Sagna will be out of contract at the end of the season and there were reports there the Frenchman is looking to move elsewhere. Further, few days back, we reported, Arsenal are already scouting players in case the right-back leaves, with Everton’s Seamus Coleman, pinned as possible target.
Arsene Wenger, however, expects to resolve Sagna’s on-going contract problems with the next next fortnight. He said:
“Yes, that could be decided in next two weeks. It looks positive. It would be a great boost, of course.”
Sagna, who has been outstanding this season for the Gunners, is likely to get around £70,000-a-week. The defender has showed great loyalty in the past and believes he is worth one last big contract.
