Juventus Interested In Arsenal Defender Sagna - Report

The Bianconeri have their eye on the explosive defender, who can also ply his trade in midfield...
Juventus have put Arsenal full-back Bakari Sagna on their summer wish-list, according to the newspaper Le Parisien.

The French international has impressed since moving to the Gunners from Auxerre for €9 million in the summer of 2007 and the Bianconeri management view him as the perfect alternative to Zdenek Grygera on the right side of defense.

La Vecchia Signora would like to add a right-back that has more offensive capability and the 26-year-old would seem to fit the bill. Any deal would likely cost Juventus at least €13 million. However, it is unlikely that coach Arsene Wenger would allow one of his star players to leave unless they expressed a desire to exit the club.

Sagna was voted the best right-back in the Premier League last season and has kept up his high standards of play in 2008-09, making 37 appearances in all competitions this campaign.
