Wenger desperate to keep Nasri

The 24-year-old netted 15 goals for the Gunners last season but

with the France international entering the final year of his

contract, both Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini are keen to

lure the midfielder away from The Emirates. Wenger, however, said

of his compatriot: “We will do everything to keep Nasri at the

club. My wish is that he stays here. “If he looks back he can see

that he’s come quite a long way with us, and I think there is still

a bit to do. It’s the club that makes the player’s career.” On the

potential departures of Cesc Fabregas and Gael Clichy, Wenger

added: “Obviously we want them to stay. They are part of Arsenal

and big players for the club so we want them to stay, but we will

see.”
