Everton & West Ham make Sagna approach, Man City exit likely

Everton and West Ham have already started to make their approach to Manchester City veteran Bacary Sagna as the Frenchman reaches the end of his contract, SportWitness cite Le 10 Sport as reporting.

What’s the word?

34-year-old Bacary Sagna is out of contract with Manchester City at the end of the season and opportunities are arising for the Frenchman to remain in the Premier League, with both Everton and West Ham making an approach.

First arriving in English football a decade ago, joining Arsenal, Sagna is one of the most experienced defenders currently plying his trade in the Premier League and would be a significant addition to both the Hammers and the Toffees.

Remaining in England could be appealing to the veteran, as he’ll likely have hopes of playing for France at the World Cup at the end of the 2017/18 season, and with two top-sides in for his signature it’s set to be an interesting saga.

Who else is keen?

As well as suitors from the Premier League, Bacary Sagna is also said to be attracting the attention of Marseille and a move to the Ligue 1 side, who can be regarded as a sleeping giant, is an interesting prospect given the club’s takeover last summer.

Marseille are pushing for European football, as are Everton, and opportunities in continental competition may swing things in the favour of the offering party. Wages may also come into though and Marseille would be unlikely to be able to offer the same as Sagna would make in England.
