If major tabloids are to be believed, Liverpool are seriously looking to bring Arsenal’s right back and French International at Anfield in the coming summer. As Gianluzi Di Marzio writes in Sky Italia, “The French defender has an expiring contract, he is pondering Arsenal’s renewal offer, but the Gunners aren’t the only EPL club pursuing him. In fact, Liverpool has made him a substantial offer. It will be up to Sagna to decide if he wants to remain in England or not. Should he decide to leave the Premier League, Inter is in the pole position, but Sagna has yet to respond to the Nerazzurri’s offer.”Sagna
However we here at Soccersouls believe this deal would be a no brainer and hence provide three reasons why Liverpool shouldn’t buy Bacary Sagna even for free.
1. Age Factor
I for one feel the Frenchman is well past his sell by date and the Arsenal right back is too slow sometimes which will make him unsuitable for Liverpool who rely on speedy counter attacking gameplay, looks out of position quite too often and his end product is not that good too. He was a great player, but I still feel he would add no real value to the Liverpool squad and signing him for free would be a no brainer.
