Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna is being monitored by clubs in France and Russia after failing to agree a new contract with the Gunners, according to the Daily Express.

The French full-back has chosen to leave the club after rejecting a new deal from Arsenal due to his disappointment at their selling of key players Robin van Persie and Alex Song last summer.

The 30-year-old has one year left on his current contract, and Arsenal will probably sell the former Auxerre man this summer to avoid losing him for free next year, even if it means he leaves for a knock-down price.

However, Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala are determined to beat off competition from PSG and Monaco to sign Sagna, and could offer a decent fee of £12million for his services.

Arsenal may feel the time is right to sell Sagna anyway, as he has not found his best form for the team for much of this season, and youngster Carl Jenkinson has looked like more than a capable backup.

The Gunners have also been linked with other right-backs to replace Sagna, such as Manchester City’s Micah Richards and Feyenoord’s Daryl Janmaat.
