Cesc Fabregas says his dream is to captain Arsenal.

"I would love it," he said. "I am happy with everything, my number four, playing for Arsenal in centre midfield and giving 100 per cent every, every, game.

"But if the boss thinks in one or two years I am ready to be captain, I will take the armband."

The Spaniard believes he is "privileged" to be a Gunner, reassuring fans who are concerned he could leave next summer.

"Arsenal is Arsenal," he added. "This club has something special that no others has. We have to take care of it.

"I have a lot of friends in Spain and Italy and when they speak about other clubs I know I am privileged to be where I am. I don't want to lose it. I want to win things for the club. I want to play for Arsenal.

"When you see football all around the world, you see very few teams who play the way that we play.

"I just enjoy it. I feel it is my home now.
