Surely Arsenal lack strength in the defense department with star Bacary Sagna turning 31 and not much quality replacements are available in heart of Arsenal’s defense Per Mertasacker and Laurent Koscielny. Arsenal also have been criticized in the past for letting their star players leave easily by offering them poor and late contract extensions but this time the things have changed.
Reports suggest that Arsenal are considering offering a new contract to arguably the best Right Back in the Premier League in last 5 years, Bacary Sagna.
The 31 years old right back who has been at the club for close to eight seasons, is free to discuss transfer deals with other clubs. The club wants him to stay as only few players in Europe have the kind of experience and quality he brings to the team. His ability to play in various positions across the backline is also seen as a big asset too good to ignore.
The French international has already turned down various contract offers from the club, and has been linked with PSG, Inter Milan, Galatasaray, Manchester City, and Liverpool according to The Daily Mail.
