The Gunners host the Trotters at Emirates Stadium in the fourth round and van Persie, who is likely to be rested, is buzzing to see the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Emmanuel Frimpong, Francis Coquelin, Park Chu-young and Ryo Miyaichi strut their stuff.
"Iâ€™m very much looking forward to seeing the guys play," Van Persie told the club's official matchday programme.
"They had a really nice game against Shrewsbury (3-1 win) in the last round and you saw lots of young players, big talents, make a real impact. Iâ€™ve trained with most of them, and watched them play, so I can tell you that there is a lot of talent in these players.
"Whatâ€™s special for me is that theyâ€™re not scared â€“ whether theyâ€™re playing at Emirates Stadium or the training ground, all they know is to play their football and enjoy it.
"Iâ€™m excited to see how theyâ€™ll do against what is a very good Bolton side â€“ itâ€™s another step for them and a big test, so we should be in for an interesting evening and Iâ€™ve no doubt theyâ€™ll perform well."
