The Spanish giants are said to be willing to listen to offers for the 27-year-old over the summer, but the Gunners have first refusal on their former skipper.
Fabregas is said to be open to making a return to the Premier League, and his relationship with Wenger together with a buy back clause means the door is open for the Gunners to swoop in there before anyone else.
Arsenal are said to have installed the clause when Fabregas originally left for the Nou Camp in a £30m deal back in 2011.
The La Liga side have to inform them if they receive a bid, and the Londoners then get first refusal, but should the Gunners opt against making a move to bring him back then they will instead receive a share of the transfer fee.
Arsene Wenger is said to be interested in bringing his former charge back to the club and will make an offer should he become available, but may have to stump up around £35m in order to do so.
