Arsene Wenger admits there has been no progress on contract talks with Bacary Sagna but says Arsenal will “accept it and respond” if the right-back does decide to leave.

The France international is approaching the end of his deal at the Emirates and is widely expected to leave the club on a free, with Chelsea and Manchester City both said to be interested.

Wenger says the ball in still in Sagna’s court with regards to contract talks, but the Gunners boss suggested Arsenal will look to “respond” in the transfer market if he goes.

“I will have to accept it (if he leaves) because only he can decide that now. If he goes, we will accept it. We will accept it and respond,” Wenger said

Wenger is also yet to pen a new deal, although it is expected he will stay on.

Asked when an announcement could be expected, Wenger replied: “When it is done.

“Certainly at the moment we are focused on the (FA) Cup final. After, yes.”
