Arsene Wenger has revealed he’s hopeful that the club can announce new deals for Bacary Sagna and Per Mertesacker ‘soon’.
The Frenchman is out of contract this summer and although negotiations have been ongoing, he is now in a position to sign for another club if he so chooses.
Meanwhile, the BFG is heading towards the final 12 months of his contract and tying him down to a new long-term deal is of huge importance given his influence on the team.
Speaking at his press conference today, the manager said, “We hope to announce something soon.”
It would be fantastic news to have both players commit their futures to the club. It would also be a real boost for morale and confidence at this crucial part of the season.
Fingers crossed we get that announcement soon.
