Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna in ‘advanced talks’ with Fenerbahce
Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna looks set to join Turkish champions elect Fenerbahce, according to reports in his native France.
The 31-year-old is out of contract at the Emirates this summer and has been tipped to leave the Gunners in search of a final bumper contract and big pay rise.
His discussions with Fenerbahce are advanced, claims French newspaper L’Equipe.
The report suggests that a move to Istanbul would see Sagna double his salary to £100,000-a-week.
Sagna, who arrived at Arsenal from Auxerre in 2007, has been in talks over an extension with the Gunners, but talks appear to have ended in stalemate.
Manager Arsene Wenger recently admitted that discussions were “not progressing”.
