Arsenal supporters could be in for more headaches next summer if both Theo Walcott and now Bacary Sagna leave the club. Talks to renew the contract for popular Arsenal defender Sagna have reached an impasse after the Gunners have only offered Sagna a one-year extension. Not surprisingly, Sagna wants a longer term deal.
The French defender is 29 years-old, and will be 30 in February, so the north London club are hesitant to offer a long-term deal.
What do you think? Should Arsenal bite the bullet and give Sagna a long term contract of 2-3 years? Or is Arsenal being prudent?
