Sagna keeping all options open

Sagna keeping all options open

Bacary Sagna is heading into the final year of his Arsenal contract, and while there’s been intense speculation about his future and a possible move away, he says he’s not ruling anything out at the moment.

Arseblog News understands that there’s serious interest from PSG, and to a lesser extent Monaco, but the right back could see out the last year of his Arsenal contract too.

And with two games left to play this season, he’s determined to give his all.

“I’ve always worked hard for the club in which I have to play,” he told le10sport.com. “Right now though, I do not know what will happen.

“Personally, PSG has never contacted me, but I do not close any doors. I could very well continue at Arsenal or go elsewhere.

“Nobody knows what will happen in the future. Monaco? I read about that too, but I have no news. I will finish the season and then we’ll see. I don’t close the door or PSG, or to Monaco or Arsenal.”

The former Auxerre man has played 234 times for the Gunners since joining in 2006, and while this season has seen him fall a bit short of the high standards he’s set, his consistency has been a feature of his Arsenal career.

Arsene Wenger has to decide if two leg breaks in the last 18 months have taken their toll, and whether or not he feels Carl Jenkinson is ready to become a first team regular, perhaps understudied by young Spaniard Hector Bellerin next season.

That the club handed Jenkinson a new long-term contract at the same time as the likes of Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey suggests they’re confident in his potential, and bar a signing would be the obvious choice to take over should Sagna decide to move on.
