Arsene Wenger has confirmed that he will do his utmost to keep hold of star midfield duo Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.
While Fabregas has once again found himself the subject of intense speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona, Sami Nasri’s contract situation has seen the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United both touted as possible suitors.
Speaking to Arsenal.com, the coach confirmed:
“Our position is always the same, we want to keep Cesc and I will fight as hard as I can to keep him.
“Samir Nasri is exactly the same. We will do everything we can to keep him.”
Wenger also confirmed that due to a small muscular problem, Fabregas would not be joining his teammates on the forthcoming tour of Asia.
