Van Persie on brink of signing new Arsenal contract

Robin van Persie is close to signing a new four-year contract at Arsenal.

Robin van Persie is close to signing a new four-year contract at Arsenal.

The Dutch ace wants to double his money to £80,000-a-week but Arsenal remain concerned he has had a major injury in each of his five seasons at the club, says the News of the World.

And it is also believed that he does not show up well in the psychological profiles manager Arsene Wenger puts such emphasis on.

So a deal is likely to be struck at around £65,000-a- week for the striker, who is settled in Hertfordshire with his wife and child.
