Aaron Ramsey is desperate for the Dutchman, who has been linked to Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus, to stay at the Gunners
Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey is desperate for the club to keep hold of star man Robin van Persie but also revealed that the Dutchman had not given any indication about his future.
Van Persie scored 30 league goals as the north Londoners finished third to qualify automatically for the Champions League group stage and has been linked with moves to Manchester City, Barcelona and Juventus.
“It’s important we keep Robin if we seriously want to be title contenders,” Ramsey is quoted as saying by the Sun on Sunday.
“He has proven this season what his value is to the team with the goals he has scored. It’s important to keep those sort of players at the club.
“He was our top goalscorer, won the Golden Boot and the Player of the Year awards, so any team would want to keep him. Arsenal are no different.
“He hasn’t given any of the other lads any indications on what he is going to do. Nothing has been said. But, hopefully, he will stay.”
