The experienced France international has been at the Emirates now since arriving from Ligue 1 outfit Auxerre seven years ago, however, with the 31-year-old’s contract with the Gunners now set to run out at the end of June, Sagan will be available to pick up on a lucrative Bosman-style free transfer this summer.

And as a result, the attacking full back has been able to speak with foreign-based clubs who may be interested in his services from the turn of the year, with both Serie A giants Inter Milan and Turkish champions Galatasaray known to be keen on landing the Frenchman next season.

In fact, the Italian outfit’s sporting director Piero Ausilio even met with Sagna’s agent recently while over in London to discuss a possible summer switch to San Siro, with Inter prepare to hand the defender a two-year contract with the option of a third year, while Gala have already offered the player a three-year deal worth a staggering £100,000 per week.
