Arsenal shareholder jets in to discuss Fab bid - reports
Barcelona target and Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has received a high praised endorsement from his Spanish international teammate Andres Iniesta, who the Arsenal midfielder would play alongside at the Nou Camp if a deal was finally made for the Gunners' skipper.
The Barcelona midfielder said: "We have said it many times before. We would be thrilled with his arrival.
"We are speaking about one of the best, but it all depends on the two clubs as well as the player's wishes."
The 27-year-old's comments come as Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke arrives in London to sort out the transfer saga that has hung over the Gunners' pre-season preparations.
The Daily Mail reports that Kroenke's main priority is to talk through Barcelona's latest offer, believed to be £35 million - £5 million short of Arsenal's valuation - which may well be enough for the La Liga champions to finally seal the deal for the Emirates skipper.
Arsenal are fast approaching their first Barclays Premier League fixture away to Newcastle on August 13th, closely followed by their UEFA Champions League first round play-off the midweek after..
If Fabregas were to play the European fixture for Arsenal and later make the move to the Spanish club, it would rule him out of any Barcelona games in the tournament, due to UEFA rules.
