Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood claims the club have no intention of selling captain Cesc Fabregas.
The Spanish midfielder is reported to have told the Gunners that he wants to rejoin boyhood idols Barcelona this summer.
It is claimed that the creative midfielder has already informed Arsene Wenger of his wishes and hopes the French coach will grant him the opportunity to seal a dream move to Camp Nou.
Fabregas began his career in the youth ranks at Barcelona, before being snapped up by Arsenal while still in his teens.
He quickly progressed into the first-time fold with the Gunners and has been a regular part of Wenger's plans for the last six years.
Speculation regarding a return his roots has been building for some time, though, with the 23-year-old admitting he would relish the opportunity to turn out for Barcelona at some stage.
It appears that time has come, with Fabregas revealing that the prospect of winning major trophies in Catalunya would be too good to turn down should Barca make their move.
Having opened the door to Pep Guardiola's side, it is expected to be only a matter of time before Arsenal's resolve is tested with a big money bid.
For now, though, the Gunners maintain that they have no desire to listen to offers for their skipper, with Hill-Wood attempting to reassure the club's supporters by insisting that Fabregas is not for sale.
"We are not remotely interested in selling him," he said in the Daily Star.
