Manchester City may be ready to offer Sagna a three-year contract after the defender rejected two offers from Arsenal, according to the Daily Mail.

Sagna is out of contract with Arsenal this summer and is free to talk to other clubs, but cannot hold discussions with Premier League teams until the season ends. It doesn't look like Sagna wants to remain with Arsenal and the defender has already hinted he wishes to stay in London, though Manchester City could be very tempting.

A trip to London from Inter Milan representatives in the hope of securing Sagna this summer has resulted in rumors in Italy that the defender wishes to stay in the Premier League and in London, reports the Daily Mail.

The Italian news suggests that Sagna may either agree to new terms with Arsenal, or seek a move to Chelsea or Tottenham. Inter Milan have already secured Nemanja Vidic, and were looking at Sagna to augment their defensive options.

Arsenal and Sagna are due for contract discussions this week, reports the Daily Mirror.

The pair have been at a stalemate in negotiations while Sagna continues to be linked with Inter Milan, Monaco, and Galatasaray. The defender's contract expires this summer, but could sign a pre-contract with other teams before then.

Sagna has reportedly been offered a 4.1 million per year contract by Galatasaray, the Daily Mail reports.

Sagna's current contract with Arsenal expires this summer, and he's already begun negotiations to see if he can return to the club. It would obviously be a huge pay increase to join the Turkish giants, who are reportedly joined by Fenerbahce, Paris Saint-Germain, and Monaco as clubs interested in his services. Arsenal have offered Sagna a two-year extension, worth 3.6 million, which doesn't give him a raise from his current contract. Sagna remains a firm member of the Arsenal back four, giving him clean sheet potential often.

Sagna will renew contract negotiations with Arsenal this week, Goal.com reports.

Sagna's current contract with the Gunners is set to expire at the end of this season, but it appears both parties are interested in extending the right-back's deal to remain in London. The 30-year-old is said to have pre-contract offers from clubs in France and Italy, so Arsenal will be keen to lock-up their summer of 2007 signing to avoid losing Sagna for free this offseason. In an ideal scenario, Sagna would sign a short-term extension with Arsenal, while teammate Carl Jenkinson prepares for a starting role in the coming years.

Sagna (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup for Saturday's Premier League match at Manchester City.

Sagna had a two-week layoff but he's finally ready to contribute again. The Gunners welcome back his stamina and athleticism, albeit the entire back line has played very well this season.

Arsenal is hoping to have Sagna (hamstring) back for Saturday's Premier League match at Manchester City, The Telegraph reports.

The Gunners head into this fixture on short rest - they played a Champions League game at Napoli on Wednesday - but Sagna hasn't made a December appearance yet. Getting a regular starter back, and a rested one at that, would be a boon for Arsenal.

Sagna (hamstring) is expected to miss Arsenal's Champions League match at Napoli on Wednesday, the Daily Mail reports.

Sagna continues to recover from a hamstring injury he initially aggravated in Arsenal's first match against Napoli in early October. Given the Gunners' hectic holiday schedule, they'll be eager for Sagna to return. In the meantime, Carl Jenkinson will slot in at right-back.
