Van Persie to play for Arsenal against Cologne tonight
Van Persie is in line to play in Arsenal's friendly in Cologne.
Dutch striker van Persie has been with the club's training camp in Germany this week and it is understood there have been no further developments about a potential move to Manchester United.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger does not want to sell to United, Sir Alex Ferguson has yet to come back with an improved offer and it means van Persie could yet start the season at the Emirates, says the Sunday Mirror.
Van Persie is certainly in Arsenal's plans for the Cologne game and Wenger remains hopeful that they may be able to keep him, especially after splashing out big money on new signings Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla.
