Arsenal are losing their battle to keep Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

The Daily Star says the midfield still want to quit Arsenal - and have let the club know it.

The Gunners' pre-season plans continue to be undermined by the sagas surrounding the likely loss of two of their biggest stars.

Barcelona target Cesc Fabregas put in his first appearance in front of 10,000 Arsenal fans yesterday at an open day and is set to feature in his first game tomorrow against Benfica in Lisbon.

Any potential embarrassment over his inclusion in the official squad photographs, though, was headed off when torrential rain caused the shoot to be postponed.

Nasri is not travelling to Portugal due to an ankle injury.
