Arsenal Prepared for Worrying £25m Striker Bid: Why can’t they bid for Adebayor Instead?

Robin van Persie is wanted by Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan.

Potentially disturbing news for Gooners

The Rumour

The Italian champions are preparing a £25million bid for the Arsenal striker who is currently away on World Cup duty with Holland.

Inter boss Mourinho wants to transform the club that has won four consecutive Serie A titles into champions of Europe.

He sees Van Persie, 25, as a key recruit.

Van Persie is currently negotiating a new contract with the Gunners.

The Analysis

There is no doubt that the longer RVP goes without signing a new contract the longer Gunners fans will have to legitimately worry about the Dutchman’s future at the club. The inspirational striker no doubt has no immediate plans to leave the club that he has served for just over five years but noises made by the former Feyenoord man and his agent have occasionally given Arsenal fans cause for concern.

Jose Mourinho is no doubt planning for the imminent departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid amongst others. Van Persie on his day is unplayable for defenders but niggling injuries have somewhat stifled the 25 year old’s progress at the Emirates.

The Likelihood

Van Persie to Inter Milan: Will stay at the north London club as long as Arsene hurries up and gives him the deal he wants.
