Hiddink plans £45m move for Van Persie

Published Add your comment

Robin van Persie could have his loyalty to Arsenal seriously tested as mega-rich Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala reportedly plan a bid for his services.

Van Persie is out of contract next summer and the Gunners are striving to to persuade their captain to extend his stay with the club beyond the terms of his current deal.

However, according to the Daily Mail, Anzhi are preparing to offer the Arsenal striker a contract worth £45 million over three years in order to prise him away from the Emirates Stadium.

Anzhi, managed by former Holland boss Guus Hiddink, are funded by billionaire Suleyman Kerimov, and have already proven their strength in the transfer market with the acquisition of Samuel Eto'o last year.

The former Barcelona striker became the highest paid player in the world when he joined from Inter Milan, and Van Persie could rank alongside Eto'o if he left Arsenal for Anzhi.

Van Persie has also been linked with Manchester City and, it would appear, his future with the Gunners is far from resolved.
