Bacary Sagna
Sagna agrees deal with Manchester City, reports suggest.

Arsenal full back Bacary Sagna will join Manchester City after agreeing a three-year contract with the Premier League champions, reports in France claim.

Sagna, 31, is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium this summer and has failed to agree a new deal despite being locked in talks with the club for most of the season.

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain and Manchester United have been credited with interest in the defender but L'Equipe claim Sagna is set to follow the path previously taken by Kolo Toure, Emmanuel Adebayor, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri and leave the Gunners for City.

The report claims Sagna has been offered a deal worth £150,000 a week, a significant increase on the £80,000 he was understood to be earning in north London.

Sagna has been ever-present at right back under Arsene Wenger following his arrival from Auxerre in 2007 and won praise from his manager for his relentless dedication to the Arsenal cause despite his uncertain future in the latter stages of the 2013/14 season.

His departure will leave a gaping hole on the right hand side of Arsenal's defence. While Carl Jenkinson has frequently taken up that role with Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin also waiting in the wings, Wenger will be expected to make a new right back a priority this summer.

Ivory Coast international Serge Aurier remains heavily linked with filling the void to be left by Sagna. The 21-year-old, who was named in the Ligue 1 team of the season, expects to leave Toulouse this summer and has made no secret of the fact that a move to north London would interest him.

"It has never been my priority (moving to a club in England). I prefer one that shows its commitment to me, who guarantees me playing time," Aurier said earlier this week.

"I would not refuse Arsenal. This is a club that has a history, which has hosted many French-speakers who also have a French coach. Plus Arsenal is always looking for titles and playing in the Champions League."
