Barcelona’s interest for Dutchman Robin Van Persie increases and even though the transfer period has ended for now and Robin is still at Arsenal, the Catalans are still looking to transfer him.
According to today’s papers Barcelona will attempt to transfer Robin in the summer, and even though he seems happy at Arsenal the Gunner captain still hasn’t extended his stay at the club.
“What is more amazing is that you look at Robin’s number of games played, and number of goals scored, then it becomes absolutely top, top class.”, said Wenger
“That is what he is: a world class player. You have national class, international class and world class, and Robin is world class.
“I like players who score away from home because it shows real quality and shows mental qualities like courage, desire. Robin has all that.”
Robin’s contract is due to expire in the summer of 2013, and even though that seems like a long way away next summer it will only be 1 year left for the Dutchman and if Arsenal are to sell him the transfer fee would be, like in Nasri’s case, smaller.
