Cesc Fabregas has reiterated his desire to stay at Arsenal, admitting he would ‘love’ to win the Premier League.
The Spanish midfielder is reportedly a top summer target of the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Milan, but the 21-year-old insists that he will not be following Milan-bound Mathieu Flamini or Alexander Hleb, who looks set to move to Internazionale, out of Emirates Stadium.
“I will stay at Arsenal,” Fabregas told The Sun. “My coach asked me and I told him he had my confidence.
“I’d love to win the Premier League and I am one of those players who fight for what they want until they achieve it.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal forward Robin van Persie believes the club’s wage structure is a reason why players are considering leaving north London.
“Arsenal won’t pay enormous amounts but should go to a higher level,” added Van Persie.
“If you want to keep the group together, you have to keep them happy. If you are 27 or 28 I can understand that you would make the decision to go elsewhere if you can earn three or four times as much. If that sort of money was also paid at Arsenal I’m sure that person would stay.”
