Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has welcomed talk of a deal for Montpellier defender Emir Spahic.

The Bosnia captain claims he is on the verge of signing for the Gunners, who are short of cover at the back after seeing experienced trio William Gallas, Sol Campbell and Mikael Silvestre leave the club this summer.

Gunners full-back Bacary Sagna, who came through the ranks at Auxerre before joining Arsenal in 2007, has watched Spahic's progress with Montpellier with interest, and admits that he would make a good addition to the Arsenal squad.

Sagna said: "I used to follow him in French football last year and he is a good player.

"He's definitely good enough to play for Arsenal and everyone will welcome him if he does come."
