Robin van Persie is ready to pledge his future to Arsenal if they can match his own trophy-winning ambitions.

The Dutchman confirmed discussions about a new deal and van Persie has reportedly been stalling over a new three-year, £80,000-a-week deal - with Barcelona understood to be monitoring his situation. But with less than 18 months remaining on his current contract, he hinted that Arsenal need only to splash out in the transfer market to convince him his future lies in north London.

"I'm still in negotiations with Arsenal, and it's going well - in a very positive atmosphere," said Van Persie. "There are further meetings planned."

He added: "Financially Arsenal's last offer is fine, but that isn't everything for me. It's about my ambitions and how they can be fulfilled.

"The club and I want the same, and it's our intention to achieve that. We have all the other factors in place - fantastic stadium, dedicated support and money in the bank.

"Now it's about making that final push. In the last four years, I've only won one prize, the FA Cup - and that is too little. I want to push through to achieve more.

"That is something I feel in my mind and my body. It's difficult to explain, but I certainly feel I can play an important role in taking Arsenal to a higher level."
