Trio ready to quit Arsenal

The Gunners trio is concerned at the club’s lack of silverware and ambition.

A source close to Arsenal told News of the World: “There is a real problem developing because the big names are bemused at the way things are going.

“If Arsenal finish outside the top four, there’s no way the likes of Van Persie, Adebayor and Fabregas will hang around.

“They love playing for Arsene Wenger but they also want to win things.

“And, as things stand, they can’t see that happening. It’s not about how much money they can earn, it’s about winning trophies for these guys.

“They want to see some ambition and they want to see the club buying the right kind of players.

“Andrey Arshavin is obviously a good player but many of the squad thought Arsene should have bought a strong midfielder and a centre-half, not just another neat and tidy ball player because there’s already plenty of them.”
