The Arsenal legend Ray Parlour, who played for the Gunners for twelve glorious years, has spoken out about the most important player for Arsenal to sign this season; Robin Van Persie!
The Arsenal captain scored (as usual) in last nights 2-1 win over Newcastle which puts the Gunners just one point behind Tottenham in third place, and there is no doubt that they would be nowhere near that position without Captain Vantastic leading the team from the front.
“He’s in a very strong position with one year left on his contract.” Parlour said.
“Arsenal can’t afford to let him go on a free transfer, so they couldn’t keep him for a season. He’d be a massive loss if he left but if he doesn’t sign a new deal this summer, they’ll have to make a decision to sell him.”
“For me, the biggest signing they can make this summer is Robin Van Persie.”
Although Arsenal fans are understandably worried, Van Persie has made it clear that he loves Arsenal and his passion was there for everybody to see in last night’s confrontation with Tim Krul.
I can’t see him leaving at all, can you?
