7 Solid Reasons Why Arsenal Should Sign Cesc Fabregas

He or she is a fool who swallows every transfer morsel daily whipped up by tabloids and dubious websites that concoct transfer rumors for seemingly no reason than for the traffic and the fun of it.

In the case of Cesc Fabregas, though, he who seemed a sure bet to rejoin Arsenal from Barcelona (since it appears he is leaving the club) no longer appears to be headed to Arsenal.

David Ornstein of the BBC reports:

Arsenal have informed Barcelona they will not be exercising a buy-back option on former player Cesc Fabregas. It is understood Fabregas, 27, was keen to return to Arsenal but manager Arsene Wenger is not looking to recruit a creative midfielder.

Reports (see, for example, Matt Law's article on this for The Telegraph) seem to indicate that Fabregas may now be headed to Chelsea—a big shame were this to prove true.

As an Arsenal fan and a supporter of Arsene Wenger, I am convinced that allowing Fabregas to join Chelsea would be a huge mistake for the club and for Wenger, akin to Chelsea's mistake in allowing Daniel Sturridge to join Liverpool.

I advance seven reasons why Arsenal shouldn't let this happen, and why they themselves should reverse their decision and sign Fabregas.
