Arsenal are prepared to hold Robin van Persie to his contract. The Daily Express says the 28-year-old striker has one year left on his contract at Arsenal and bosses have already said they will do their utmost to keep him despite Van Persie openly voicing his desire to move.

According to sources, the club will tell Van Persie that they will not accept any offer for him this summer despite the Holland striker receiving high end bids from Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus.

Arsenal are keen to keep Van Persie at all odds and are willing to tell the striker that they are prepared to risk losing him for nothing in a year's time instead of selling him now.
