Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna is confident that star striker Robin van Persie will remain with the club.

The Dutchman, who scored 30 league goals to fire the Gunners to third, is a target of Manchester City and Juventus.

“I’m confident Robin will stay,” Sagna told a national newspaper.

“He was a complete professional from the beginning until the end [of the season] and helped us into third.

“We want to keep him. Everyone is so grateful to him for what he’s done for the club and how important he is.

“He is our captain and takes his role and responsibilities very seriously. He gives everything as a player and captain.”
