Ex-Arsenal captain Samson: Right time to sell Cesc

Former Arsenal captain Kenny Samson says they can afford to sell Cesc Fabregas - but not Samir Nasri also.

Fabregas, Arsenal's captain, has been the subject of a £35 million bid from Barcelona - a move Samson feels is inevitable.

Samson told the Daily Telegraph: "Fabregas is a great player but for me £35m would be good money for him. If you lose him and Nasri it would be a big blow though.

"Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere are both very good going forward and defensively, while Fabregas is more of an attacking player, so you don't really need him.

"I'm not saying Fabregas is no good. He is very good. But you need someone who is going to sit behind Ramsey and Wilshere and let them be free to go and play."
