The experienced France international’s current deal with the north London club runs out at the end of June and despite Sagna and the Gunners having been locked together in negotiations now for well over the past 12 months, there has still yet to be any agreement between the two parties.

However, in a new twist on developments, Sagna is now set to wait until after this summer’s Fifa World Cup finals are over before the full back makes a final decision as to where his future will lie next season after he had rejected Arsenal’s offer of a new two-year deal.
Norwich v Arsenal
Arsenal AWAY WIN (1.91)
“Arsenal are too good a price to ignore here, Norwich are all but down after Sunderland’s win midweek and that could massively impact their mentality going into this match; what team would really think they could overturn a goal difference like they have to here?
The Canaries battled incredibly well at Stamford Bridge, their defending was magnificent, and they were unlucky not to be awarded a stonewall penalty in the first half. They will attack here, and that’ could be their undoing.

The Gunners have kept a clean sheet in their last 3 matches, and Norwich could well be beaten even before they get on the pitch, so it has to be Arsenal”
