Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed the club have made no progress in their attempts to agree a contract extension with Bacary Sagna.
The 31-year-old defender is free to leave the club this summer and has been linked with a host of clubs, including Italian side Inter Milan, the Gunners' Premier League rivals Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in his native France.
Wenger remains hopeful of persuading Sagna to remain at the Emirates, but admits that talks between the two parties have stalled.
"At the moment they (talks) are not progressing. We know what we want from him, he knows what is on the table and that is where we are," said Wenger.
"The ball is not in our camp anymore, it is in his camp, and he needs to come back to us."
Sagna joined Arsenal from Auxerre in July 2007, having spent three seasons with the French club's first-team.
He has made over 280 appearances for the Gunners and has been a regular in the French national squad since making his debut in 2007.
He has been named in the PFA Premier League team of the season twice; in his debut season in 2007/08 and again three seasons ago.
