Arsenal's right back, Bacary Sagna, has arguably been the most consistent defender for the club. The 29-year old is one of the longest serving players at the club and has made in excess of 200 appearances for them so far.
However, Sagna is becoming increasingly disenchanted at the club, with the player unhappy due to several high profile exits from the Emirates. The problem doesn't seem to be stopping for Arsene Wenger, with Theo Walcott's future too looking uncertain at Arsenal.
One club that looks set to take advantage of Sagna's discontentment is Inter Milan. According to the Daily Mirror, the Italian giants have stepped up their attempts to sign the Frenchman and could come in with a concrete offer next summer.
The Gunners meanwhile do have a replacement in the form of young Carl Jenkinson, who does seem to be coming into his own this season. At just 20-years of age, Jenkinson could turn out to be a very apt long term replacement and this means that Wenger may just consider offloading Sagna while he can still recoup some of the Â£6 million he paid Auxerre to sign the defender, and also reduce his wage bill considerably as well.
This development though would come as another blow to Arsenal fans, who have had to see several top players leave the club in recent times, and believe that the Gunners should have two quality players for each position moving forward due to their abysmal luck with injuries.
