Wenger: Arsenal won't let Cesc Fabregas go
Barcelona have made no secret of their desire to bring Fabregas back to the Nou Camp, where he played in the youth set-up before moving to Arsenal. But Arsenal turned down a reported £29 million bid for Fabregas earlier this summer and have consistently stated that their club captain is going nowhere.
''I am very happy with Cesc and we are all very happy at the club with Cesc,'' Wenger told Arsenal's official website. ''He is a very important player for us, he is our captain and we have worked very hard [for him] to be the future of our team and that is why we are always adamant about [not] letting him go.
''It is only noise [the interest from Barca]. In our job we have to deal with what we can master. What we cannot influence is not to worry about.''
When Arsenal turned down Barcelona's approach in June, the club issued a strongly-worded statement making clear that Fabregas was not available and that was not up for negotiation.
Fabregas still has five years remaining on his Gunners contract and Barcelona spokesman Toni Freixa said this week: ''Arsenal don't want to sit down and negotiate with us.''
