Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he wants to keep hold of Bacary Sagna.

Sagna's future remains far from certain as he enters the final 18 months of his contract.

Manager Arsene Wenger said the club had started talks with the France full back.

"We are hopeful. He had some big injury issues but with him and (Carl) Jenkinson, you need two players and we want to keep them," he said.

But Inter Milan want to sign the right back with Arsenal ready to listen to offers for Sagna next summer if a new deal cannot be agreed.
