So Bacary Sagna is refusing to sign Arsenal’s offer of a one-year extension to his current deal, and it seems, for the moment, the club will not change their stance either. If it doesn’t, then we will no doubt be seeing the French right-back leave The Emirates in the upcoming summer, unless Arsene Wenger wants to risk losing him on a free this time next year.
Should Sagna leave the club then the position will certainly need to be strengthened. Yes we have Carl Jenkinson in the ranks and he has developed immensely since his arrival from Charlton in 2011. However, despite his energy, stamina, desire and pace, he is still very much inexperienced and needs time to hone his ability further.
Wenger could very well shift Laurent Koscielny out to the right, as he is currently being kept out of the starting line-up by Per Mertesacker. However, the Frenchman, I believe, is more effective and comfortable in the centre of the back four.
So if Sagna does decide to call time on his Arsenal career, who should Wenger look to replace the 29-year-old with?
The media have recently linked us with moves for Toulouse’s Serge Aurier and newly Barcelona’s Dani Alves. But who would you like to see Arsene bring in next month or in the summer to potentially replace Sagna?
