Arsenal have according to goal.com upped their last offer to the French international right-back Bacary Sagna and are willing to now pay him £95,000 per-week in a two year deal with an option for a third year.
Sagna is one of Arsenal’s longest serving players and was disappointed at the original one year extension to his current contract that was first offered him saying that he wanted at least three years and an increase in pay.
With Arsenal at first seeming not to want to budge on their deal which was in line with company policy for players over 30-years of age the 31-year-old looked set to move with Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Liverpool all interested in signing the free agent.
Arsenal is now hoping that their new offer will be enough to keep Sagna at the Emirates with Wenger on Friday telling reporters: “We know what we want from him, he knows what is on the table and that’s where we are. The ball is not in our camp any more. It is in his camp and he needs to come back to us.”
Should Sagna decide to walk away Arsenal have been looking at Frankfurt’s Sebastian Jung as his replacement with the Bundesliga club thought to be asking £7 million for the 23-year-old.
