The Spain midfielder failed to shine this season at Barcelona and could be available for transfer his summer but should his former manager be interested in taking him back?
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is understood to have £100 million to spend this summer on reinforcements but should he part with sentiment and ignore the opportunity to buy back the club's former captain, Cesc Fabregas?
Goal revealed in April that Barcelona would be prepared to listen to offers for the player whom they bought from the Gunners nearly three years ago and, with the north Londoners understood to have first refusal on a player of undoubted class, Wenger might be tempted to exercise that clause.
But former Arsenal midfielder Ray Parlour believes that Wenger's priorities should lie elsewhere and that he should be looking to buy a striker capable of providing Olivier Giroud with genuine competition before adding to his already well-stocked midfield.
The Gunners are also likely to require defensive reinforcements this summer, with Bacary Sagna expected to complete a move to Manchester City in the coming weeks, while club captain Thomas Vermaelen is also set to reassess his future after the World Cup.
Wenger, who himself is yet to sign a new contract with the club, will also be in the market for a new goalkeeper after FA Cup hero Lukasz Fabianski revealed that the Wembley triumph over Hull City marked his last appearance for club.
So do you think Wenger should bring Fabregas back to north London or would he be better off spending his sizable transfer kitty elsewhere?
