|Sagna helping the youngsters|
The problem is if the French fullback does not sign a new contract and Wenger has to start Jenkinson or buy somebody new. I don't believe that Jenkinson is good enough just yet, so who could Arsenal realistically buy?
I believe that there are only a handful of players that are about as good as Sagna. Lahm and Ramos (when he plays there) are the best right-backs in the world and impossible to buy at the moment. Lukasz Piszczek, Pablo Zabaleta, Dani Alves and Branislav Ivanovic are the only players, I believe, that are as good as Sagna and all of the names mentioned would be highly unlikely to move. The most realistic option is probably Lukasz Piszczek, but if he did move it would probably be to the Dortmund A-team: Bayern Munich.
If Wenger does buy a right-back in the off-season will he go for a temporary option while Jenkinson and Bellerin get better or will he buy an up-and-coming player to be at the club for years to come?
There are dozens of articles on great young right-backs to buy: Astuto Uchida, Sebastien Jung, Sebastien Corchia, Ricardo van Rijn, Marcos Rocha, Nathaniel Clyne, Roberto Rosales and Sam Byram to name a few. Maybe Arsenal are going to buy one of these players, but Wenger normally trusts in youth.
I think it's vitally important that Wenger convinces Sagna to sign a new deal and slowly bring through the youngsters as he is famous for.
