Arsenal fight off Barcelona push for Van Persie

Arsenal have fought off the attention of Barcelona in star striker Robin van Persie.

The European champions have made Manchester City star Robinho their No 1 target for the January window after concluding that a move for Emirates idol Van Persie would be too difficult to pull off, says the Daily Mail.

With Barca also keen to eventually sign Cesc Fabregas at some point in the future, the Catalans are choosing their battles wisely and believe Brazil forward Robinho is a player they have more chance of landing.
