Arsenal hero Rix fears more players will leave

Arsenal hero Graham Rix fears his old club will continue to lose star players.

Cesc Fabregas has left for Barcelona, while Manchester City signed for Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy.

"When you see the financial difficulties some people are having and when you see Arsenal's fantastic stadium and training ground and the flood of young talent they have got at the club coming through, it's in a really stable situation Arsenal," Rix told talkSPORT.

"But the problem they are having now is the players they are producing are not going to be paid enough to remain at Arsenal. Fabregas left for different reasons but certainly Clichy and Nasri was for financial reasons and that would be worrying.

"Despite all the great players you are going to produce, when they are at their peak they are going to leave and play for another top club."
