Report Official Arsenal Thread in UK and ROI Football Posted January 27, 2014 Re: Official Arsenal Thread To be honest must put some perspective on this ' date=' Hes been very good this season but he had 2 poor seasons before that and ive said this months ago that I reckon he would play for a move to france albeit I thought PSG . I would be very disappointed to lose him for a free but I think as long as we can get a new RB in the summer then it wouldnt be as big of a loss as people are making out Like I would rather lose Sagna then Mert , Kos , Gibbs etc. Althrough ideally I would keep Sagna As long as we sign Jung and someone else to replace Jenkinson we should be alright. With the Draxler rumors going round , There is absolutely positively no chance we will sign him in this window and to be honest I doubt he will sign in the summer. Is fernando from porto out of contract soon? If not why not look at him to strengthen the midfield on the cheap and add more depth.[/quote'] I wouldn't say Sagna was 'poor' for the last two seasons but he certainly wasn't playing up to his usual standards. That said, even an average Saga is better than most RB's out there. You also have to factor in the misfortune of breaking his leg twice in one season which I think was the main reason behind his dip in performance. Therefore I have to disagree with you and say that it is absolutely vital we keep Sagna for as long as we can. Whilst he doesn't quite possess the attacking threat he used to when marauding down the right flank I think you'd find it very hard to find a RB who is better defensively and more committed than Sagna. The man is an absolute model professional and has been an extraordinary player for us. Losing him would only have a negative impact on the club, no matter who we were to buy as his 'replacement'.
