Bacary Sagna has revealed that he could sign a contract with another team in January amid growing uncertainty surrounding his Arsenal future.

The France international is yet to agree a new deal with the Premier League leaders with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season, meaning he can speak to potential suitors next month.

If I can sign a contract as a free agent from January for another team? It’s an option for me

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, whose side are two points clear of second-placed Liverpool, has expressed his belief that Sagna will commit his future to the club despite the continuing speculation surrounding the defender’s future.

While the 30-year-old right-back insists he loves Arsenal, the former Auxurre man is adamant that he could still reach an agreement with another club next month.

“I’m still talking with Arsenal about a contract extension,” Sagna told French TV show ‘Club du Dimanche’ on beIN Sport.

“I feel good here, I like everyone in Arsenal and I hope that something good will come out from our talks.

“If I can sign a contract as a free agent from January for another team? It’s an option for me.

“I have positive feelings in Arsenal, I love this club and I still hope to win a major trophy here.

“But, that’s true, Arsenal lost a lot of good players, almost a whole competitive team since 2007 and Arsenal could have been better with all these players.”
