Milan an option for Van Persie

Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie would consider a move to Milan at the end of the season, his agents have admitted.

The Dutch international has been heavily linked with a switch to San Siro given that he’s only contracted to the Gunners until June 2013.

“Milan want Van Persie? Good! We can talk about it,” Jeroen Hoogewerf told TMW on Thursday afternoon.

Van Persie has grabbed 32 goals for the Gunners this season and he won’t discuss a new contract in London until the campaign comes to an end.

“We would prefer not to talk about his contract and we have nothing to add about that,” Cornelis Vos, his other representative, told TMW as well.

Milan will face some competition from Manchester City, amongst other clubs, if they do make a bid for the player.

It’s understood that Zlatan Ibrahimovic would prefer playing alongside Van Persie next term, rather than the also linked Manchester City pair of Carlos Tevez and Mario Balotelli.
