Inter Milan launching £25M bid for Arsenal ace Van Persie

Inter Milan have launched a bid for Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.

Inter Milan have launched a bid for Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.

The Mirror says the Italian champions are preparing a £25million bid for the Arsenal striker who is currently away on World Cup duty with Holland.

Inter boss Mourinho wants to transform the club that has won four consecutive Serie A titles into champions of Europe.

Van Persie is currently negotiating a new contract with the Gunners.

He has two years remaining on his current deal, but the Arsenal hierarchy are keen to seal a new deal now rather than allow time to go by and face the threat of him leaving as a free agent in 2011.

Inter know that they will face a massive challenge in prising van Persie out of the Emirates. His wife Bouchra is expecting their second child and the family are settled in London.
