PSG are launching a bid for Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.

The Sunday Express says Van Persie was last night mulling over a £25million move to Paris St Germain.

After bringing in Lucas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, manager Arsene Wenger is believed to have signalled that he can now afford let RVP go if the Dutchman continues to play hardball over a new contract.

Manchester City's interest has cooled since the Dutchman's disappointing Euro show.
