Which striker should Arsenal get to replace Van Persie?

The contract talks with Arsenal’s captain Robin Van Persie are not going too well, and it seems that the Dutch striker might leave Arsenal this summer after he snubbed the first set of negotiations held between himself and the club.

Arsene Wenger has stated that he wants Robin to extend his contract before going away to join the Dutch team for the pre-EURO 2012 camp, and that ship is about to sail if the striker won’t accept a deal soon.

Russian club Anzhi have also expressed their interest to sign the Dutchman for a huge salary, while Juventus, City and Barcelona are also on his tracks.

Arsenal rumour roundup – Adil Rami, Hazard, Vertonghen, Eriksen and Yilmaz

The Arsenal rumour mill seems to be building up to the upcoming transfer window, and as Sol Campbell has openly announced that Arsene Wenger needs to bring in top players to convince Robin Van Persie to stay at the Emirates.

The ongoing Eden Hazard affair continues and it has been revealed that the Man United boss Alex Ferguson has taken a personal interest in the young Belgian. The likelihood of Arsenal getting Hazard seems to be receding into the distance.

Another interesting Arsenal rumour is that Wenger is chasing the Valencia defender Adil Rami. The 26 year-old is certainly class, but I personally think that Jan Vertonghen is the most likely defender to come to the Gunners.
