Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie has today been linked with a summer move to Italian giants Inter Milan. The Dutch international is currently locked in negotiations with Arsenal over a new long-term contract, with the club unwilling to cough up the £80,000 a week Van Persie is demanding.
The 25-year old has been one of Arsenal's top performers this season in what has largely been a disappointing campaign to date. Inter boss Jose Mourinho is desperate to bring a new striker to the San Siro once the season ends, with Van Persie believed to be his number-one target, however Arsene Wenger will obviously be reluctant to sell one of his most prized assets.
If Arsenal are to finish the season without winning any kind of silverware, I think Van Persie may well look for a move to Inter. Since joining the club back in 2004, Van Persie has won just one trophy. The FA Cup in 2005 and for me, a player of Van Persie's quality should be winning more than just one trophy every four years.
What do you think? Will another trophiless season see Van Persie on his way out of the Emirates? Leave your comments below.
Carling Cup in 2007??
I though that RvP11 played with the Gunners in 2007, but maybe he did play CC in a blue shirt on that final day??
I feel that another trophless season will see many of the best players who are hungry to win honours leaving the club unless the club is going to pay them havily which is unlikely given Arsenal wage policy.

Sorry about that, just fixed it there!
anonymous, arsenal didn't win the carling cup in 2007. what is yopur point? i don't even remember him playing in the final, but i might be wrong on that part.
The previous seasons aside, who in Arsenal is without fault for this seasons poor results? Cesc? His form has been crap, and he has like 1 goal this season, compare that with stevie G, so if he wants to go then he can leave and he will be replaced with the 30 mil we get for him. Adebayor? Form has been crap. V.persie is the only one who can complain.
This article is nonsense. For a start Van Persie, although a sublime talent, has spent a lot more time out injured than he has on the pitch. He's had a decent season thus far, but it's still February. Adebayor has had one decent season for the club too and seems to forget that he's actually achieved nothing in the game yet. It's time these guys stopped reading their own press and looked at the way players like Henry and Bergkamp conducted themselves at the club
Van persie! you are awesome!
yeah right, he aint going nowhere. he is gunner and he would be stupid to go to the italy. dont even think about it mourinho!
RVP should stay at London~~
It's not a nice move heading to italy
see how henry survive in Barca
no future for rvp in inter
Don't leave arsenal, persie!!
Gunners need him
-van Persie's great!!^^-
