Bacary Sagna advises Arteta to sign 3 players

former Arsenal player asked Mikel Arteta to sign three prominent players in the Premier

The French player Bacary Sagna a former


player asked Mikel Arteta coach of the Gunners club, to sign three prominent players in the English Premier League.

Arsenal was a fierce competitor for the English Premier League title this season, but it suffered a series of disappointing results in the last rounds, so

Manchester City

retained its title.

Sagna believes the Gunners can finish the job next season if they sign West Ham's

Declan Rice

, Leicester's

James Madison

, and Southampton's

James Ward-Prowse


And the former right-back believes Maddison and Ward-Prowse would be available for deals after their clubs are relegated to the Championship.

Arsenal tried to sign Madison in 2021 without success but he may be able to achieve that this summer by paying the penalty clause in his contract, which is estimated at about 40 million pounds.

Ward-Prowse is also set to leave after 12 years at


, although he does not seem ready to accept any offer of less than £40 million.

He added, "Every team needs a player who can change the game When Arsenal were playing Stoke, Rory Delap was a player who could change the game on his own because of his long throw-ins. Ward-Prowse is an expert in set pieces and when the field is closed and you have a player with his ability that is dangerous." Extremely.

And he continued: "His free kicks are the best in the league I am not saying that he will start every match, but if you include him from the bench with 15 or 20 minutes left, he will make the difference You need players like that in your team."

Sagna also insists Arsenal should do everything they can to sign Rice should Swiss

Granit Xhaka

leave the team.

And he added: "I think he will play at Arsenal with more freedom than he currently enjoys at

West Ham

. I think he will find himself in situations where he will have the opportunity to add more goals to his game because he will receive better service at Arsenal and he will play with better players who will be able to find It's like



I think the only way for Arsenal to allow Xhaka to leave is to sign Declan Rice. If Xhaka leaves, then hopefully Arsenal will have a good chance with Rice.
