Arsenal morning news: Monaco want Wenger; Sagna decision delayed

Stade Louis II Monaco

All the latest news and gossip from The Emirates this morning.

AS Monaco are said to be considering an ambitious move to bring Arsene Wenger back to the principality this summer. Wenger, who coached the Monegasque side between 1987 and 1994, is said to be lined up as a big money replacement for former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri.

Wenger has verbally committed his future to the club but has not yet signed an extension to his rolling contract - which expires this summer.

Cold the lure of free spending and a return to his former club prove to inviting for the 64-year-old?

Bacary Sagna has reportedly not made his mind up on an exit from the club - and will wait until after competing at the World Cup with France this summer before making a decision on his next move.

It seemed like goodbye last week when the right-back waved at fans at the front of an Emirates lap of appreciation - but the recent signing of Laurent Koscielny to a new deal is reportedly bending the ear of Sagna.

He is out of contract in June and is wanted by Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Fenerbahce amongst many attracted suitors.

Rumours linking Loic Remy with a move to Arsenal gathered momentum last weekend when the Frenchman was spotted at The Emirates for the West Brom game - but North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur are set to seriously rival Arsenal for the French international’s signature.

Remy, currently on loan at Newcastle United from QPR, is said to be a major target at White Hart Lane.

However Remy is said to want Champions League football - something Tottenham cannot offer.
