Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to ‘break the bank’ in an effort to keep Robin Van Persie at the club this summer, according to reports in the British press.
With Barcelona, Juventus, Real Madrid and AC Milan all showing an interest in the 28-year-old, the mega deal would end talk of a move away from the Emirates Stadium for the Dutch hitman, who currently has less than 18 months left on his current deal with the club.
After the north London outfit announced half-year-profits of £49.5 million yesterday, generated by the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri in the summer, fans will be hoping to see investment in the Arsenal squad as soon as possible.
And, an offer that will see Van Persie become the highest paid player in the club’s history would be a good start, with talks over a new deal for winger Theo Walcott also on Wenger’s agenda.
