Cesc has been mentioned, but our man is adamant that he's going nowhere:
"At 19 years old, Cesc represents the future of Arsenal and we are looking forward to him being a major part of our plans for many years to come. I would like to make it clear that Cesc Fabregas is not for sale and we will not be listening to any offers for him.
"Since making his first-team debut nearly three years ago, Cesc has progressed remarkably well, with his performances rightfully earning him a place in the Spain World Cup squad."
Meanwhile Javier Saviola looks likely to be joining him. His agent has said:
"He will make his decision based on football and that points to the Gunners. He will have no problem playing in England because he is a world-class player and will be successful in any country. This week is very important because he wants to have a holiday knowing he has his future sorted out."
I realise that 'agentspeak' must normally be taken with a pinch of salt, but these comments imply that Arsenal have made the player an offer. It is the price that might indicate more than a shred of truth to the rumour.
We'll have to wait and see (as usual), but personally I feel that Arsene should be concentrating on signing a centre half - Fabio Cannavaro will do nicely!
