Wilshere: Arsenal must keep Van Persie

Jack Wilshere says its critical Arsenal keep hold of skipper Robin van Persie.

Wilshere, who will miss the European Championships with an ankle injury, knows the importance of this week's contract talks with captain Van Persie.

"It's important we keep him," he said. "Everybody knows what he brings to the team and also in terms of his leadership qualities. I think getting third place (in the Premier League) will help us do that. I know there are contract talks this week and I hope we can keep him in the team."
