Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger plans clear-the-air talks with Robin van Persie this week.

The Daily Mail says the Gunners skipper, currently on holiday, is expected to speak to his manager over the phone in the next few days.

Wenger wants to have a one-on-one conversation with his captain without the influence of the player's advisors.

The talks are likely to prove pivotal in establishing whether Van Persie still has a long-term future with Arsenal.
