Arsene Wenger remains confident captain Robin van Persie will stay at Arsenal next season - and rubbished suggestions the Holland striker would be moving to Italian champions Juventus.

Van Persie has yet to resolve his long-term future, with a year left to run on his current Gunners contract. The Dutchman held preliminary talks with Arsenal before he left for what turned out to be a disappointing European Championship campaign as the Netherlands failed to progress past the group stages after three defeats.

Van Persie, 28, plundered some 37 goals in all competition to help fire Arsenal back into the third place in the Barclays Premier League - and with it automatic qualification into the Champions League once again.
