The Spain international left the north London club to re-join his boyhood team at Camp Nou in August 2011 for an initial fee of 35m euros.
However, the Gunners have still to get their hands on any silverware since Fabregas’s departure from the Emirates, meaning it is is now nine long years since the club last tasted success against arch rivals Manchester United in the 2005 FA Cup final.
But the 26-year-old says that he still watches every Arsenal game, and he is desperate for Arsene Wenger’s men to be Premier League champions come the end of the campaign.
“I watch every game of Arsenal’s,” he told Sportsmail. “I am very happy how they are playing, they have a strong squad, they are top of the league.
“I cannot wait to see if they can lift the trophy finally.
“It would be amazing, they need to be very consistent between now and the end of the season.”
