London:

Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has failed to recover from a muscular injury and will not travel to Germany for the Gunners' pre-season camp as uncertainty over the player's future at the club continues.


The midfielder, who has again been linked with a switch to European champions Barcelona, also missed the tour of Asia with the same problem.

"Fabregas has not completely recovered from his muscular injury," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger told www.arsenal.com on Friday. "It is too early for him, he is not ready."

Wenger insisted that there has been no further development in the long-running transfer saga involving Fabregas.

"The position at the moment is a 'no comment' situation because there is no movement at all," said Wenger.

Two players that Wenger has admitted could be leaving this summer are goalkeeper Manuel Almunia and striker Nicklas Bendtner with neither player having travelled to Germany.

But he is confident that French midfielder Samir Nasri, linked with a move to Manchester City, will stay at the Emirates.

"(It is) not completely (sorted that Samir will stay) but I want him to stay. He knows that. Hopefully we can sort that out in the coming weeks," said the manager.

"Alumina has been contacted by a few clubs, Bendtner as well.

"As long as the situation is not settled, we have to focus on the coming season with the players we have. The players who are uncertain, it is difficult for them to focus on being completely committed."

Wenger said that summer signing Gervinho is in line to make his Arsenal debut against Cologne on Saturday.
