Former Arsenal club captain Cesc Fabregas is looking forward to his return to the Emirates - to watch the clash against Wolves on Boxing Day.

The Spanish international returned to Barcelona in the summer transfer window for a reported £35 million, leaving the club alongside Samir Nasri in an August to forget for Arsene Wenger.

Things have turned around on the pitch for the Gunners, despite their 1-0 loss to Manchester City at the weekend, and Fabregas insists he is still a fan of the club and is looking forward to seeing them in action.

"Arsenal gave me everything and I will never forget that. I am looking forward to going to watch them on December 26 and catching up with everybody there," said the 24-year-old midfielder.

"It's a special club that has always been amazing for me. I have only good things to say about them."

Fabregas is free to travel to the Emirates Stadium because of the winter break in La Liga, with Pep Guardiola's squad enjoying some time off following their victory in the FIFA Club World Cup final on Sunday.

However, a proposed tube strike could cause problems for Fabregas' schedule in the capital, with Arsenal revealing in a club statement that they may move the clash to the 27th because of the transport issues.
