Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal will try and keep Samir Nasri, despite Cesc Fabregas confirming his exit from from the London club today.

Fabregas has long been linked with a move to Barcelona, and despite Wenger’s insistence that he would keep the skipper, today a deal was confirmed for five years with the Spanish giants.


And while reports are speculating that Nasri could leave Arsenal for Manchester City within the next week, Wenger insists that the club are still fighting to keep hold of the 24-year-old.

"I want Samir to stay, hopefully we can sort the situation out," Wenger said.

"His situation is not linked with Cesc's departure."

Nasri has joined training with Arsenal, giving Gunners fans hope that they might have their star for at least the Champions League qualifier against Udinese.

But Manchester City are still reportedly chasing Nasri, with Roberto Mancini admitting on Friday that he hopes the matter is resolved soon, and with City hoping to wrap up all their summer signings by this weekend.
