Liverpool legend Souness: Arsenal will be forced to sell Van Persie

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has questioned whether Arsenal can keep hold of Robin van Persie.

Souness wrote in his column for the Daily Star Sunday: "It is going to be difficult for Arsenal to hold onto Robin van Persie.

"I fear they could lose their Dutch striker, just as they lost skipper Cesc Fabregas to Barca for £33million and fellow midfielder Samir Nasri for £25m to Man City in the summer.

"Top players look for two things – what they are going to be paid and if they can win things.

"Van Persie will probably discover he can earn more money elsewhere, at a club with more chance of lifting trophies – but it might take a £30m fee to sign him."
