Francesc "Cesc" Fàbregas Soler (born May 4, 1987 in Arenys de Mar, Catalonia, Spain), is a Spanish football midfielder, who currently plays for English club Arsenal. Arsenal signed him from FC Barcelona in the middle of 2003, after Fàbregas failed to sign a professional contract with Spanish giants. He has been touted as one of Spain's next generation of footballers.

Fàbregas made his team debut in a League Cup tie at home to Rotherham United, and in doing so became Arsenal's youngest ever first-team player. Although this doesn't count for any record, he converted a penalty in a penalty shootout, which the Gunners won 9-8. He then became the youngest goal scorer in Arsenal's history in a later round of the League Cup, scoring from very close range in a 5-1 victory against Wolves.

It wasn't until the start of the 2004-05 season that 'Cesc' started making first team appearances. First it was against Manchester United in the Community Shield and then four successive Premier League starts against Everton, Middlesbrough, Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City. Fàbregas impressed many observers in his first four appearances, claiming a goal against Blackburn in a 3-0 victory.

On December 7, 2004, 'Cesc' scored Arsenal's third goal in a 5-1 UEFA Champions League victory against Rosenborg of Norway, making him the second youngest goalscorer in the history of the competition.

The Spanish Under-21 international recently signed a new deal with the Gunners that will keep him at the club until 2011.
