Arsenal set to sign Bakari Sagna?

By 1970’s Gooner

According to the Sunday Mirror, Arsene is about to increase his summer’s transfer outlay to £15.5m with the imminent addition of the Auxerre right back Bakari Sagna. He is likely to cost £7.5m and this price seems to be the compromise reached with the president of Auxerre Gerard Bourgoin who hinted only last week that there were a few things left to agree with Arsenal before the transfer went through.

"Sagna has a deep desire to play in England and he genuinely wants to wear the Arsenal shirt. They seem keen to sign him as well. The conditions for him to leave have not all been met — at least for the time being."

Apparently Sagna will sign a five-year contract and his wages will be about £25,000 a week.

But isn’t Wenger concentrating at the wrong end of the pitch? Shouldn’t he be utilizing his energy and available cash in recruiting another forward and a wide midfield player instead?

Wenger may be interested in buying additional cover when Eboue will be away at the Africa Nations Cup. I think however that this will be an expensive cover at £7.5m and judging by how frugal Wenger is with Arsenal’s cash we just do not see this as being the main reason why Sagna is interesting him.

There is a possibility that Wenger will “promote from within”. Eboue could be pushed forward to the right midfield position as he has been tried by Wenger on a few occasions in the latter stages of last season’s campaign. Notably against Portsmouth, Manchester Utd and Chelsea with good effect.

Let's hope this proves to be another inspired signing by Wenger who has the ability to sign relatively unknown players who under his tutelage rise to stardom.

You never know with Wenger he might for all we know sell on one of our defenders. I don't think he will buy a 7.5m player to sit him on the bench!
