Arsenal forward Robin Van Persie has scooped the October player of the month category, BBC
The Dutchman has scored seven goals in his last three Premier League games and is on a magnificent run of form, which has seen him revive Arsenal back to seventh place in the table. Arsenal fans are desperate to get their star player tied down to a longer contract after negotiations have opened between the two parties. Van Persie’s hat-trick last weekend against Chelsea helped lift the Gunners over their rivals 5-3 and Gunners fans know that they cannot afford to lose another star player after the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri. Van Persie has been named player of the month twice before back in November 2005 and October 2009.
