Arsenal morning news: One more attempt over new Sagna deal, Guardiola's warning ahead of Gunners clash

Sagna

A round up of news stories this morning about Arsenal.

Arsenal will have one more go at tempting Bacary Sagna to sign a new contract with the club.

Sagna has repeatedly turned down new contract offers due to a difference in the main personal terms.

He reportedly wants a longer and more lucrative deal than the Gunners are willing to offer and he could leave the club if this next round of talks fails to produce an agreement.

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has warned his Bayern Munich side ahead of the second leg of the Champions League clash against Arsenal.

The Gunners go into the second leg tomorrow night 2-0 behind the Germans, but they won by that exact score in the Allianz last season.

“If we give Arsenal too much possession, we will have big, big problems. If we keep the ball, we'll get into the quarter-finals, if they control it, they'll go through,” said the Bayern boss.

On the transfer front, striker Robin Van Persie has once again been linked with a return to North London.

The forward has reportedly been struggling with life under David Moyes so far this season.

Van Persie left Arsenal for United in the summer of 2012 and now reportedly desires a move back.
