Jack Wilshere has pleaded with Cesc Fabregas to show loyalty to Arsenal again and prove he is a 'real man' by turning down Barcelona.

The England midfielder, 19, said: 'If you are loyal, it means you are a real man. We have loyalty at Arsenal and players have shown that in the past. Cesc showed that last year and hopefully a few more players will show it this year.'

This is clearly a reference to Samir Nasri, a target for Manchester City, who looked relaxed training in Kuala Lumpur.

Wilshere added: 'We have a good team and we need to keep our big players if we want to win things. Any team wants to keep their best players. Look at Tottenham and what`s happening with Luka Modric.

'Robin (van Persie) has said he would be devastated if we lose Cesc. It's the same for me.'

'He has been a role model for me and he is the player I want to aspire to.

'It would be a shame if we lose him but hopefully we can keep hold of him.'
