Arsenal will reportedly break their stringent pay structure in order to ensure Robin van Persie remains at the Emirates Stadium.

The future of the Dutch striker at in north London is in doubt as he stalls over the signing of a new contract with the the club.

Van Persie's current deal expires in 2013, but he is in no rush to negotiate with Arsenal over a new deal, although Gunners chiefs are said to want to tie him down before next summer.

Arsenal fear the 28-year-old could have his head turned and, according to the Daily Mail, club sources claim a 'significant' offer will be made in an attempt to keep him at the club.

The figure in question is speculated to be around £90,000-per-week, with van Persie currently earning some £20,000 less each week.


The Gunners had been prepared to pay Samir Nasri a similar amount, but the Frenchman rejected the offer and reportedly doubled his wages upon joining Manchester City.

And, should van Persie follow his former Arsenal teammate's lead, then City have been touted as potential suitors of the Holland international.
