Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has reiterated his desire to sign Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas, but says the final decision rests with the Gunners.

Barcelona have already signed Spain striker David Villa this summer and also brought in versatile Sevilla defender Adriano this week, but their pursuit of Fabregas has lasted for months and Arsenal appear unwilling to do business.

"I think bringing in Cesc will cost a lot," Guardiola said at a press conference on Monday.

And the coach was pessimistic about his club's chances of signing the midfielder.

"We want him to come, but if Arsenal don't want to negotiate, he won't come."
