Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has promised the club’s supporters that he will do whatever he can to keep Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri at the club.

Both midfielders have been linked with moves away from the Emirates, with each seeming keen to begin the 2011/12 campaign elsewhere.

And having already lost Gael Clichy to Manchester City this summer, losing captain Fabregas and French schemer Nasri would be a big blow to the Gunners’ Premier League title ambitions.

"Our position is the same, we want to keep Cesc and I will fight as hard as I can to keep him", said Wenger to Arsenal’s official website.

"Samir Nasri is exactly the same."

Fabregas is being targeted by boyhood club Barcelona, with a deal worth between £35M and £40M not thought to be too far away.

Nasri meanwhile has just a year left on his current deal with the Gunners and has so far failed to sign an extension. Both Manchester City and Manchester United are keen on the 24-year-old.
