Arsenal latest: Sagna exit official, Cuadrado linked and new Madrid striker targeted

Arsenal Emirates 3

All the latest news and gossip from the past 24 hours at The Emirates.

It is now official Bacary Sagna has revealed he will be leaving Arsenal this summer. The French international is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a move to Manchester City.

He has reportedly not been offered the contract he wanted, and has therefore told L'Equipe:

"It's no longer a secret: I'll leave Arsenal. They tried to make an effort, but the discussions have not gone in the direction I wanted. To finish at Wembley with the Cup, it was something magical."

Arsenal are therefore set to make a move for a right-back this summer.

It comes on the same day that Lukasz Fabianski confirmed he would be joining Swansea City on a free.

Arsenal are reportedly set to tie up a deal for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata. The club have been linked with his signature on several occasions in the past but on this occasion it seems that Arsene Wenger might just get his man.

The Spanish under-21 international is reportedly after a move in order to get regular first-team football.

Aaron Ramsey says that away defeats cost them last season. Some might say that it was the Welshman's injury absence but he believes:

I think the results away from home against the so-called bigger teams have been damaging and that's what's cost us in the end.

"In all of those games we conceded early on and going to these places is difficult, never mind going a goal down. I think it's important just to stay in the game and frustrate them."

Juan Cuadrado of Fiorentina is again on the shortlist this summer. The Colombian is also being linked with Barcelona and Liverpool. Meanwhile Pedro of Barcelona and Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria are also said to be linked.

Samuel Eto'o wants a move to Arsenal. The Cameroonian has been released by Chelsea after one season at the club - after a fractious relationship with Jose Mourinho in West London. But he wants to play Champions League football next season and reportedly stay in England.

He also has offers from around the world - including China, the Middle East and USA.
