Arsenal reject Van Persie offer
Juventus have launched a bid to land Robin van Persie
Arsenal have turned down a 10million euros (£8million) offer from Juventus for Dutch striker Robin van Persie, according to reports in Italy.
The 28-year-old, who scored 27 goals in all competitions for the Gunners last season, is a target of Juventus, Manchester City and Paris St Germain.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve will have to up their bid to acquire Van Persie after their first offer to secure the Holland international was rejected by the English Premier League club.
Van Persie has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium this summer with his current contract expiring in 12 months' time.

For a player like van persie.. in his prime and with one of the best shooting techniques in the game.. thats a stupidly low offer. As an arsenal fan itd be sad to see him go but if he wants to then twenty four million is a fair asking price. And whoever says arsenal are doomed without him, please dont be so narrow minded. We lost henry, our captain and top goalscorer, but carried on, we lost nasri and fabregas, and yet guess what, came third, our highest finish for a while now. Im not saying Arsenal will be good enough to win trophies, coz i dont think they are yet, but wenger knows how to keep us in the top four against all odds.
Far too good to be a bit part player when hes in the peak of his career, come on Real or Barce! you know you want him!
8M?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!? Are they high?!??! He is worth atleast 30M with the season he just recently had, kind of retarted of Juventuns to even bother to offer such a ridiculous bid.
