Reports out of Italy are claiming that Inter Milan have put Arsenal striker Robin van Persie at the top of their wish list and could even make a bid for the Dutchman as early as January.
It is no secret that van Persie has not signed an extension to his contract and this has of course alerted Europe’s top clubs and with van Persie in such hot form at the moment it really was only going to be a matter of time before one of Europe’s big clubs made a bid for the 28 year old.
Inter know full well that Arsene Wenger is determined to keep a hold of van Persie, but as with Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasris it really comes down to what the player wants and while-ever van Persie refuses to sign an extension there remains a very strong possibility that van Persie will be sold, either in January or in the Summer.
A fee of £35 Million is being reported and that will tempt Arsenal, van Persie may be on a hot streak at the moment, but he turns 29 in the Summer and his value will only go down from that point onwards, it certainly would not rise.
The days of van Persie at Arsenal could come to an end sooner than want the Arsenal faithful had hoped for.
