Wenger determined to keep Nasri

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is adamant he wants to keep a hold of French midfielder Samir Nasri.The 24-year-old starred for Arsenal last season, netting 10 goals from 30 Premier League appearances, which saw him attract the interest of many clubs around the world, including English rivals Manchester United and Manchester City.

Recent reports suggest Nasri may have rejected a new deal with the Gunners, but Wenger was insistent that he wants the former Marseille midfielder to stay in North London.

“We will do everything to keep Nasri at the club,” Wenger said.

“My wish is that he stays here. 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.”

Wenger also spoke about his desire to keep Cesc Fabregas and Gael Clichy, who are attracting interest from Barcelona and Manchester City respectively.

“Obviously we want them to stay,” he said.

“They are part of Arsenal and big players for the club so we want them to stay, but we will see.”
