French international Bacary Sagna is currently a free agent having being released by Manchester City in the summer, and is being watched by former Premier League champions Leicester City, according to Transfer Market Web.

The 34-year-old former Arsenal full-back would be the perfect fit for Leicester as his experience would be key to play back up for the ever impressive Danny Simpson. Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare has very little cover in the right-back spot apart from Simpson and they also have room for players as they haven't completed their squad quota of 25 players as of yet.

The right-back is still fit and read

y for first team Premier League football despite nearing the end of his impressive career. A number of clubs are keeping tabs on his situation but Leicester might be interested in giving the defender a short-term contract to prove himself at the King Power Stadium. 

Having played in the Premier League for a large part of his career including a huge seven year stint with Arsenal, Sagna would have no issues with the quality demanded in the Premier League.

Sagna will also be looking to move back alongside the top stars as he wants to attract the attention of France manager Didier Deschamps who is due to pick up his World Cup squad should France avoid any major slip ups and qualify for Russia next summer. 

With Sagna not costing a fee and his wages being well within Leicester's bracket, a move to join up with Shakespeare appears to be one that would suit all parties.
