Newcastle rival Arsenal for £6M Sagna

Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce is ready to battle Arsenal for Auxerre fullback Bakari Sagna.

The Mirror says Arsenal have already lodged a £6m bid with Auxerre and are waiting for permission to speak to Sagna.

Newcastle have now entered the race and Allardyce is eyeing up the highly-rated right-back after missing out on Tal Ben Haim, who signed for Chelsea.
