Arsenal fans think Robin van Persie will still be at Emirates Stadium next season, despite intense speculation regarding his future.


A GMF poll of 2200 fans showed that 88 per cent of them believe the Dutchman will still be wearing the club’s famous cannon on his shirt in the 2012/13 season.


Many were expecting a long summer of speculation being drawn out even further due to Holland’s instalment as one of the favourites to win Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.


However, three losses saw them crash out in the group stages and Van Persie was on holiday a lot quicker than many imagined he would be.


Holland’s surprise exit will have many thinking the saga over his future can be resolved sooner, but Arsenal’s track-record in situations such as these point towards the likelihood of some brinkmanship.


GMF felt that fans of the 28-year-old should be consulted as to whether they believe he will remain at the club and, despite much talk of a Manchester City bid, they were adamant in their voting that he would be remaining in north London.


It will be crucial for manager Arsene Wenger to convince his talismanic captain to stay, as last season his goalscoring form proved to be the crucial component in Arsenal’s third place finish – something that looked unlikely for much of the season.


Van Persie followers are evidently not put off by the uncertainty surrounding the striker and have made it clear as to where he will be come next term.
