Arsenal manager determined to keep Nasri and Fabregas

Nasri has just one year remaining on his current contract and is understood to have attracted the interest of several clubs, including Premier League rivals Manchester United.

However, Wenger has warned any potential suitors that they will find it difficult to secure the Frenchman's services this summer.

The Gunners manager believes Emirates Stadium is the best place for the 23-year-old to continue his progression, having developed into a world-class performer since joining from Marseille in 2008.

"We will do everything to keep Nasri at the club. My wish is that he stays here."

Quotes of the week

"We will do everything to keep Nasri at the club. My wish is that he stays here," Wenger said in The Sun.

"If he looks back he can see that he's come quite a long way with us, and I think there is still a bit to do.

"It's the club that makes the player's career."

Arsenal captain Fabregas was heavily linked with a move back to boyhood club Barcelona 12 months ago and reports have resurfaced in recent weeks.

The Spanish media has indicated that a deal between the clubs could be imminent, but Wenger maintains that Fabregas will not be going anywhere.

And he feels that if Arsenal can hold on to their star men this summer, it will become much easier in future.

He said: "I will be pretty clear about this. For me, Fabregas is with Arsenal for a long time and he will stay with Arsenal.

"It sometimes happens that the rumour can make the transfer.

"Next year will see the introduction of the financial fair play system, which will limit the big transfers.

"I think this is the last year that the summer will be hot - very hot."

Van Persie: Arsenal striker has let rip against Chelsea and Barcelona

Chelsea are bitches we all know that.
The Holland international, who is currently preparing for Sunday's friendly in Brazil, accused the Blues of 'always bitching' about referees and has told them to 'shut the f*** up'.
Van Persie claims the Stamford Bridge club spend far too long trying to influence the match officials and believes their London rivals would be better served concentrating on the game.
He told Dutch TV: "People who are watching the game on television and fans really do not want to see these kind of things.
"If you want to witness a lot of complaints, you should just go the bakery or something. There's always people nagging there as well.
"Chelsea players are always bitching against the referees. I really cannot understand that. Just shut the f*** up and focus on playing football."


Van Persie, who was sent off in the Gunners' UEFA Champions League last-16 defeat against Barcelona this season, was similarly scathing about the European champions.
He added: "They [Barca players] always go up to referees in an attempt to get an opponent booked.
"They are trying to screw colleagues! That really annoys me.
"The Barcelona players nag about everything that happens on the pitch. I was disappointed with that.

Nasri: Wenger has ruled out selling the midfielder to Man Utd as talks over a new contract continue

Nasri only has 12 months remaining on his current deal at Emirates Stadium and there have been suggestions the France international could leave this summer.
Arsenal's rivals United have been linked with a bid and Patrice Evra recently suggested his compatriot should make the move to Old Trafford.
Wenger acknowledged there is disparity in the negotiations with Nasri, but is adamant the 23-year-old will not be heading to the Premier League champions.


"Are we still in discussions with Nasri? Yes, but we are still in disagreement over the financial contract on offer, which we haven't settled.
"We are trying to extend his deal."
The Arsenal boss also reiterated his determination to hang on to Cesc Fabregas and does not expect Barcelona to make a renewed attempt to sign his captain.
He added: "Barcelona were interested last year in Cesc but not this year. For me, he's the world's best midfielder.
"He's our captain. We've built the team around him. Of course we want to keep him."
Wenger is trying to improve his squad before next season and has been linked with the likes of Karim Benzema and Gervinho as he searches for a new striker.
"Everyone is looking to reinforce their attack as it's always important to improve in that area of the team," Wenger continued.
"We're also after an experienced defender, maybe one who is already used to life in the Premier League. That has been our weakness.
"But you should remember that we still had a better defence last season than a lot of other good teams, including Manchester City."

Trophyless next season will be a disaster says Wilshere

Jack Wilshere admits it will be a '100 per cent disaster' if Arsenal finish next season without a trophy.
And the 19-year-old midfield insists the Gunners must show more aggression if they want to be serious challengers for silverware.
The North Londoners have now gone six years without making an addition to their trophy cabinet after seeing their hopes of prizes slip away again last season.
England international Wilshere has urged his team-mates to toughen up and put an end to that drought next term.
"It will be a 100 per cent disaster if we don't win a trophy next season," said Wilshere.
"We know that. The fans feel it. We feel it. We just need to win a trophy.
"Arsenal are a big club and we need to be winning trophies. We need to win them to keep our big players.
"We must be more aware and have a bit more aggression. We've got some players that can do that but we have to go as a team."


Wilshere has suggested Arsenal should follow the example of rivals Manchester United by arguing with referees if they do not agree with a decision.
He added: "It's no use just Robin van Persie going because it looks like it's just him having a go at the ref. If we all get round him...
"You just see the other teams do it and you think 'we need to do it as well'. Man United are the best at it. They get round the referee.
"We have to be more of a team and be more aggressive and show more authority."
