Furious Arsenal convinced agent Vos driving Van Persie away

Arsenal are blaming agent Kees Vos over Robin van Persie's contract bombshell yesterday.

The Telegraph says Manchester City are ready to bid £20 million for the want-away Dutchman.

Privately, Arsenal are furious that their star player should go public with such a provocative statement.

They were given no prior warning that Van Persie was planning to speak out, with Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis especially seething over the conduct of Vos, the Dutchman's agent.

Arsenal are well aware that Vos was a guest at the Etihad last season of Brian Marwood, the Manchester City director of football administration, and they believe that Van Persie is being badly advised.
