His current contract expires at the end of next season, but Arsene Wenger is keen to tie his first-choice right back down.

Sagna wants an increase on his current £60,000-per-week deal.

The 29-year-old is the latest Gunner whose future has come under scrutiny due to a disagreement over contracts.

Robin van Persie and Alex Song both left in the summer after failing to agree fresh terms, while Theo Walcott’s future is in the balance due to a contract dispute.

Sagna recently launched a scathing attack on the club, saying: ‘Everyone was expecting Robin van Persie to leave, but Alex Song — that was a surprise. I don’t understand that at all. ‘It is a big loss for the club. When you see two of the best players from last season leave, you ask a lot of questions.

‘I understand why the supporters are nervous. I am the only starting player left from 2007.’ – Daily Mail
