Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he would be happy to welcome Cesc Fabregas back to the club, after the midfielder indicated he would consider a future role at the Emirates Stadium.

Barcelona midfielder Fabregas has said he believes Arsenal are now looking strong enough to win the Premier League title for the first time since 2004 and he hopes they do because the club "is in my heart".

The Spain midfielder, who played 303 games for Arsenal in his eight years there before returning home to Barcelona in 2011, said he would love to return one day, possibly as a coach after his playing days are over.

Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger responded on Friday saying: "I am very happy that a player of his intelligence, technical ability and knowledge would come back one day," he said.

"That he'd come back shows he has kept fond memories of this club."
