Former Chelsea boss targets Gunners striker

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has today admitted his interest in bringing Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie to Inter Milan. Mourinho is said to have £50 million at his disposal to spend at the San Siro and his first target appears now to be Van Persie. (Corriere Dello Sport)

Van Persie, 24, has been at Arsenal for over three years now since joining from Dutch side Feyenoord. He has made 133 appearances for the Gunners scoring over 40 goals in the process. He is currently on duty with the Holland national side at Euro 2008, so any deal would have to wait until after the tournament ends.

I personally wouldn't be surprised to see Van Persie leave the Emirates this summer considering all the other players that appear to be leaving. There is no doubt Van Persie is a quality player and Arsene Wenger would obviously be keen to hold onto him but lets say if Inter did bid £20 million Wenger may not be able to resist.
