Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has denied reports that he has been in touch with supposedly unhappy Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie's agent, and has no intention of bringing the Dutch international back to the club where he started his Premier League career.

The Frenchman however refused to comment on it publicly when he was questioned on the speculation surrounding the former Arsenal man, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Van Persie, 30, left the Emirates in 2012 after releasing a statement questioning the club's ambition and has been the subject of boos and jeers from Arsenal fans whenever the two sides meet.

The Dutchman won the Premier League title in his first season and justified his price tag. But his second season at Old Trafford has seen him struggle with injuries and several top clubs are now eyeing him for a summer move.

Italian giants Juventus seem to be leading the race for Van Persie's signature. But he might want to consider a move back to his old club Arsenal. Red Devils boss David Moyes has denied any rift with his striker, who would miss out on a £10million loyalty bonus if he was to leave this summer with two years left on his contract.

French front man Loic Remy was a target for Arsenal last summer but the London outfit did not make a move for him and with Remy looking well settled at Newcastle, he might want a permanent transfer to St James' Park.

This would ensure that Arsenal would miss out on the prolific striker. Therefore bringing Van Persie back to the Emirates might not be a bad move for Wenger.
