Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits they have to do everything in their power to keep captain Robin van Persie at the club.

The Holland striker scored twice, the second in added time, to snatch a 2-1 win at Anfield in a game in which they had been outplayed by Liverpool for long periods. Van Persie, who will not open negotiations on an extension to the contract which expires in 2013 until this summer, showed how valuable he is to the Gunners by taking his tally to 25 goals in as many league matches.

"We will do anything possible to keep him," said Wenger. "I cannot say much more because I have said that many times. I am very proud that he has grown, having seen the boy arrive here timid and today being the player he is and the leader of the team he has become."
