Arsenal are in the race to re-sign Bacary Sagna, according to the bookies.

The experienced right-back is out of contract after his deal expired at Manchester City this summer.

While former team-mate Pablo Zabaleta was snapped up by West Ham, 34-year-old Sagna remains without a club.

Starsport understands Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in taking him, though.

And they remain in the hunt too with their odds 7/1 and 5/1 respectively.

Torino are frontrunners, but Arsene Wenger could make a surprise move to bring Sagna back to the Emirates.

A BetStars spokesperson said: “Arsenal are 3/1 contenders to snap up 34-year-old Bacary Sagna, who is currently a free agent after being released by Manchester City.

“Serie A side Torino are favourites to sign Sagna and are priced at 5/2 with BetStars to recruit him to replace Davide Zappacosta, who made a deadline day switch to Chelsea.

“Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Manchester United are also interested in signing the experienced right-back.

“The Eagles are 7/2 to bring him to Selhurst Park with Premier League champions Chelsea poised at 5/1.

“A move to Old Trafford can be backed at 7/1 as Jose Mourinho seeks defensive reinforcements amid an injury outbreak.”
