PSG Prepare January Move for Arsenal Full-Back Bacary Sagna

Ligue 1 side want Emirates Stadium defender.

Ligue 1 big spenders PSG are reportedly ready to line up a bid for Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna after the French international’s outspoken attack on the his side’s transfer policy.

The 29 year old spoke of his frustration as seeing Alex Song sold to Barcelona whilst also pining for the success he has seen former player’s achieve following their Emirates Stadium exits.

Sagna missed much of last season after breaking the same leg on two separate occasions but is set to return from injury within a few weeks and he is a player Arsene Wenger would be loathed to lose. However the comments made by the former Auxerre man will not have gone unnoticed and the defender may well face censure from his North London employers.

Carlo Ancelotti has been strongly linked with apparent interest in his former Blues charge Ashley Cole but the Italian will look to test the water with an offer for Sagna when the transfer window re-opens as the PSG boss looks to bring in further high-profile additions to his Parc des Princes squad.

Bacary Sagna may well be tempted by a return to his native France, especially to a PSG side that can offer him a huge pay-rise and the prospect of domestic honours and perhaps even a strong run at continental success as the Paris based side’s Qatari owners invest heavily in the club.

PSG brought in a number of big name signings this summer including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lucas Moura and Thiago Silva. Though Ancelotti brought in Gregory van der Wiel from Ajax it is thought that the former Chelsea and AC Milan manager is keen to bring in further defensive options as he looks to strengthen his squad.
