Arsene Wenger is confident that club captain Robin van Persie will sign a new deal at the club.
The Dutchman, who has been sensational for The Gunners so far this season, has just 18 months left on his current contract. Despite last summer’s high-profile departures of Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, Wenger is sure the 28-year old will put pen to paper.
“He has 18 months to go and I’m confident he’ll sign a new deal. I’m always confident.”
Wenger has assured fans that he will do everything he can to keep the Arsenal skipper, after a number of unforgettable performances, which have led to many labelling him as the best striker in the world at the moment.
The news comes after today’s feisty AGM, which saw Arsene Wenger ask all supporters to trust him. Stan Kroenke and Peter Hill-Wood, who responded to questions, were also present.
