In what will likely become one of the biggest transfer sagas of this summer, Cesc Fabregas has been seemingly kicked to the curb by Barcelona. As the club look to massively shake-up their underperforming squad, Fabregas is one of many players who the club expect to receive big bucks for.
Fabregas’ emotional ties with Arsene Wenger and Arsenal place them ahead of the chasing pack with regards to his signature. Whilst the Gunners have a whole host of talented attacking midfield options already, Wenger is still very close to Fabregas and will most likely be closely monitoring his situation at Barca. Arsenal may have more pressing areas of concern with regards to transfers, but past experiences have shown that Wenger doesn’t always allow necessity to drive his transfer policy.
