Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood admits he is 'very surprised' that the club have yet to receive an offer from Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas.
Spain international Fabregas is understood to have told the Gunners last week that he wants to rejoin former club Barcelona after spending seven years in North London.
Barca have confirmed an interest in signing the 23-year-old, but have insisted they will be respectful towards Arsenal during any negotiations.
Hill-Wood says he is yet to hear from the Primera Liga champions and has reiterated his stance that he is not looking to encourage offers for the Arsenal captain.
"We have heard nothing at all and I am not looking for a telephone call from them," Hill-Wood told the Daily Star.
"As far as I am concerned, he is our player. If they want to make a bid it is up to them."
Regarding the lack of approach, Hill-Wood added: "We are very surprised, but delighted."
Reports have claimed that Arsenal have placed an £80million price tag on Fabregas, who is currently recovering from a cracked fibula in time to be fit for Spain's World Cup campaign.
