Bayern München are lining up a move for Arsenal striker Robin van Persie , according to German reports.
The 4-4-2 Web site says Bayern boss Louis Van Gaal is keen on bringing his compatriot to the Bavarian outfit even though he would be cup tied for the Champions League.
The 27-year-old joined Arsenal from Feyenoord Rotterdam in 2004, and although his tremendous talent was obvious early on, his Gunners career has been blighted somewhat by injury.
The Dutchman returned to action in November after a two-month layoff with an injury to his left heel.
Although van Persie has only played eight games this term, he has still managed a goal and three assists.
He is contracted to Arsenal until 2014, and he is valued at €20M-30M. (IMScouting)
Robin Van Persie has had a very stop start time at Arsenal since his move six years ago, with the Dutchman missing more games out injured than he has actually started and now it appears that Bayern Munich are willing to offer a big sum for the Emirates striker and one wonders what Arsene Wenger would elect to do if indeed an offer was made by the German giants.
The 27 year old is a cult hero at the club and appears keen to fight his way back to full fitness but may well also be interested in a new challenge at the Allianz Arena. Come the summer perhaps this deal will be more relevant as the former Feyenoord man may well have either proven himself a crucial player that Wenger can ill afford to lose or he may have picked up another injury that will curtail his progess.
Marouane Chamakh has proven a great signing and has pretty much taken the goal scoring burden with the likes of Nicklas Bendtner and Carlos Vela reportedly set to leave the club, would the Gunners consider allowing Van Persie to leave as well?
