Inter Milan Pondering Bacary Sagna Swoop
Serie A heavyweights Inter Milan are weighing their options in defence and thought to have Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna set on their sights.
The 31-year-old French defender is currently in contract talks with the Gunners leadership, but is believed to be holding out on a bigger deal, with his existing contract set to expire in the summer.
The negotiation fiasco in thought to have put different clubs in full alert. Indeed, Transfer Rumours had already reported of the budding interest in Sagna from another Italian side, Serie A defending champions Juventus.
According to Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter are understood to be keen on bring Sagna to the San Siro, despite reports on the ground that Sagna may not be interested in playing in Italy.
The powers that be inside the Nerazzurri camp are already crunching the numbers and are prepared to give the French defender a bumper deal just to convince him that a move to Inter Milan is the best way forward.
As things stand, however, Arsenal remains resolute in keeping the Frenchman Wenger brought in to the Emirates Stadium in 2007. Whether Sagna feels the same way, however, remains to be seen.
