Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen has explained how team-mate Cesc Fàbregas belongs to Barcelona, it is in his DNA and something which simply cannot be forgotten.

Fàbregas was vehemently pursued by Barcelona during the summer with the Catalan giants making two offers for the 23-year-old that were dismissed by the Arsenal.

After three months of speculation, the Gunners captain eventually agreed to stay at the Emirates for the coming season, though he did admit that a move had been a tempting prospect.

And Vermaelen revealed that even though Fàbregas informed his team-mates of his desire to move back to Spain, he will be fully focused on the Arsenal cause this season.

Vermaelen told Talksport: "Cesc carries Barcelona in the heart, in his DNA - therefore it is impossible for him to forget about them.

"He was determined to go to Barça last summer, he more or less confessed it in the dressing room. But that is past history.

"Now he is 100 per cent ready to put his all in to a great season with Arsenal."
