Wenger believes van Persie is convinced by Arsenal spending

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes the Gunners have this summer spent enough in the transfer market to convince unsettled captain Robin van Persie of their lofty aims for the new Premier League season, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Wenger has drafted in a pair of international strikers, Germany’s Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud of France, and is said to be close to the capture of Spain midfielder Santi Cazorla. The Mirror note that if Cazorla does sign in at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal’s spending will top £40m.

Van Persie announced he would not be signing a new contract with the North London club, citing concerns over the ambition of the organisation, setting off a three-way bidding war for his services. Juventus, Manchester United and Manchester City were all chasing the Netherlands striker but no bids have yet been accepted, leading Wenger to believe that van Persie will stay at the club past the August transfer deadline. If that were to happen Arsenal would then re-open contract talks with their skipper.

Fans are fickle. Just let him score and we win and everyone will love RVP again. I for one would prefer that he stays. RVP's tactic seemed to have worked with regards to improving the squad with quality and making the target further than finish 4th.

i think arsenal is moving in the right direcction, by the way they have treated this issure. they leaned from last summer

It will not top 40mil,it will be 36mil.We are Arsenal and we promote efficiency in the market while being competitive,if you dont like how we do things,go to Man shitty.

It will take commitment from RVP to win back the Arsenal fans, his comments about the future of the club and failure to acknowledge just how much Arsenal did for him by huge support during his "lean years" did not go down well with the fans. We want this drawn out saga resolved ASAP and a strengthened and united Arsenal squad starting off the new season able to take on and beat our rivals.

Wenger pls decide on his future very nd let him go if he wish, dont let his case be like dat idiot {NASRI}
