Wenger desperate to keep Van Persie

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger maintains Arsenal must keep hold of captain Robin van Persie "at all costs" as they look to resolve the Dutchman's long-term future ahead of the new Barclays Premier League season.

The Gunners may have already moved to bring in fresh faces Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski, but there is still work to be done to convince Van Persie to extend his contract past next summer.

Writing in his blog for Eurosport, Wenger said: "We want to keep Robin van Persie at all costs, because we depend on him offensively. I have always supported him even in the hardest times, and I hope he will end his career at Arsenal."
