Arsenal set offer van Persie new big-money deal

Arsenal are set to offer Robin van Persie a new four-year contract and a wage rise of £90,000-per-week, The Express has revealed.

The Dutchman recently hinted that he could depart the Emirates for another Premier League club when his contract expires at the end of next season. But the Gunners are hoping to convince the striker to remain at the club by offering him higher wages and another four years at the club.

Executive Richard Law has been asked to open contract negotiations with several Arsenal stars including van Persie, Theo Walcott and Thomas Vermaelen before the January transfer window opens.

Van Persie has insisted, however, that he does not want to enter contract talks until the end of the season.

The 28-year-old was recently made captain of Arsenal following Cesc Fabregas’s departure to Barcelona, he has scored three goals in seven Premier League appearances this season.
