Arsenal's Santos: van Persie may be interested in another challenge

Arsenal left-back Andre Santos feels that Robin van Persie may be looking for another challenge after Euro2012.

The Gunners captain has been linked with a number of clubs, including Manchester City and Juventus, following his brilliant season and his Brazilian teammate suggests he might be looking elsewhere when his duties with Holland are over after this summer's tournament.

"He's amazing," Santos told ESPN Brasil. "Besides being a great person, he is also one of my best friends at Arsenal. He is a guy who has given me full support.

"He is very intelligent on the pitch. He smashed the Premier League.

"It helped Arsenal get to where we are, in the Champions League spots, and I have no doubt that he will be one of the stars of Euro 2012.

"He has been at the club eight years and this was his best season.

"Sometimes, a player is interested in getting to know other teams and of course, playing well, he has attracted interest from many other teams. Of course your mind is affected.

"He is currently fully focused on the Euros and then, after, he can talk about whether he wants to stay with Arsenal."
