Arsenal to sign top Belgian striker to replace Van Persie?

It is being widely reported this morning that Arsene Wenger is looking to bring in yet another top striker this summer if Robin Van Persie continues to refuse to sign a contract extension.

The Mail reports that he is eyeing up the top Belgian hitman Kevin Mirallis, who was the Player-Of-The-Year as well as the League’s top scorer in Greece last season as Olympiakos won the SuperLeague and Greek Cup Double.

Despite his high rating, it seems Mirallis will be available for under 7million GBP which has led to many top European clubs sending scouts to check out his abilities, including Arsenal and Liverpool.

Wenger – We will do anything to keep Robin Van Persie

Arsene Wenger saw his captain Robin Van Persie save Arsenal yet again as he scored both goals in the 2-1 comeback win over Liverpool at Anfield yesterday, and he re-iterated after the game how far he intended to go to try and keep the Dutchman at Arsenal next season.

Wenger said: “I must say we will do anything to keep him.”

“I cannot say much more because I have said that many times. I am very proud that he has grown after having seen him arriving here timid, and today being the player and leader he has become.
