Robin van Persie will reportedly reject any proposal from Juventus, after the Serie A champions became the first club to publicly declare their interest in the Arsenal captain.

The Dutch striker is out of contract at the end of next season, and will discuss his future with the Gunners following the conclusion of the current campaign.

Van Persie will have no shortage of suitors during the transfer window, given his sensational goalscoring form this term, having found he net on 30 occasions in the Premier League alone.

Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona have all been linked with the 28-year-old, while Juve's general director Giuseppe Marotta is a big fan of Van Persie.

"Van Persie is a great player," Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

"He is among the most complete players around, but he still has a year on his contract with Arsenal and so I can only express an opinion on his qualities.

"I don't feel like naming targets, as that would be unfair for their clubs and the players.

"We will try to put the icing on the cake this summer but the important thing is that the mix is good."

However, should Juventus come calling this summer, Van Persie will reject the opportunity to move to Turin, reports the Daily Mail.

It is claimed that the Arsenal forward has given his clearest indication yet that he will remain a Gunner, and says only an ‘extraordinary’ offer would tempt him to leave the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal will offer Van Persie a significant wage increase in order to keep him in north London, while Arsene Wenger remains confident he will retain the services of his skipper.
