Arsene Wenger has confirmed Bacary Sagna is a doubt for Sunday’s game against West Brom.
The right-back is struggling with a knee problem, and it may well rob him of his last ever appearance at the Emirates as an Arsenal player.
Sagna is set to leave the club this summer after 281 appearances since joining from Auxerre in 2007, and playing his last home game would have given fans the chance to give him the send-off he deserves.
Carl Jenkinson is set to replace him if he can’t make it, with the Arsenal manager unlikely to take unnecessary risks with the FA Cup final still to consider in a couple of weeks time.
Asked about Sagna’s contract situation, the boss said, “He can give you a much better answer than I can.”
And I don’t think we need to read between any of the lines to know what’s going on there.
