Arsenal aren't panicking over Bacary Sagna's comments in France this week.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal are confident they will not be dragged into another long-running contract saga, despite Sagna casting doubt on his Gunners future.

Arsene Wenger has instructed the Gunners hierarchy to begin negotiations with the right-back's representatives as soon as possible - and the club are confident he will put pen-to-paper.

Sagna currently earns around £60,000-per-week - but can expect a small salary increase if he agrees to an extension.
