Defender admits Arsenal future is in doubt

Arsenal defender Bacary SagnaArsenal full-back Bacary Sagna has confessed that his future in north London is unclear, and that he could return to France.

The 30-year-old’s hopes of regular first-team football appear to be under threat at the Emirates Stadium, with Carl Jenkinson emerging as a genuine candidate for a guaranteed starting berth.

Talks are under way between the club and Sagna regarding a new deal, but, as of yet, a conclusion has not been reached.

Big spending Ligue 1 duo Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are believed to be interested, and the right-back admitted that a return to his homeland is an option.

“Yes. It’s possible. We’d have to see in which conditions and, in sporting terms, what they propose. I won’t go just anywhere,” he is quoted by talkSPORT via L’Equipe.

“If I’m to leave, it’ll be a new challenge.”

Sagna went on to state that he is far from being unhappy at Arsenal, but that he needs regular action to boost his hopes of making France’s squad for the 2014 World Cup.

“There are [talks], but I still haven’t extended my contract. I’m talking. I’m not at a bad club either.

“If I stay at Arsenal, I’ll try to have a good season, there’s the World Cup at the end of it.”

Sagna signed for Arsenal in 2007 from Auxerre, and has gone on to make in excess of 150 appearances for the London club.
