Agent claims Sagna happy to stay at Arsenal

Bacary Sagna's agent has stressed the France international is happy to stay with Arsenal following renewed speculation of interest from Juventus. He was courted by Real Madrid during the summer, while reports have recently suggested that Juventus have revived an interest in the 26-year-old.

However, while Sagna's agent Christophe Mongai has not ruled out a move to Italy in the future, he insists there is no chance of an imminent transfer.

"Juventus have contacted us, but not recently and, in any case, they have never made an offer to Arsenal," Mongai told

"It's possible that Juventus has spoken directly with Arsenal, but nowadays the will of the player is decisive and he is fine in London and focused on his club and his national team.

"It is normal that a player like Sagna is linked with great clubs, for example Real Madrid last summer, but even if they made offers the player would not move.

"In football, you never know what the future may hold. If one day Sagna will become unhappy we might start looking around, and the Italian championship and Juventus, who admires him, could become a possibility.

"But this is not the right moment."
