Wenger planning Van Persie talks

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger hopes Arsenal's achievement of clinching Champions League football for a 15th successive season can help the club keep star striker Robin van Persie.

Arsenal's 3-2 win over West Brom at West Brom ensured they finished above north London rivals Tottenham, taking third spot in the Barclays Premier League. Van Persie ended the season with 30 league goals as Yossi Benayoun, Andre Santos and Laurent Koscielny netted against the Baggies.

Wenger said: "Will Champions League football help to keep Van Persie? It makes it easier to attract good players and keep them. The intention is to speak with him before he leaves for the Dutch camp (for Euro 2012)."
