Arsenal have so far failed to sign a top striker to their ranks this summer, despite working hard in that area, and could now turn to a former star to set things right.
Robin Van Persie is up for sale by Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce, and we are supposedly eyeing a possible bargain deal for his return.
The Dutchman scored 16 goals in his 31 league outings last season, and when realising he only featured in less than 1850 match minutes, that return is more than just respectable.
His current club president is willing to sell however, with the pair not having enjoyed the best relationship since the striker joined the club.
Earlier this week, Fenerbahce president Azil Yildirim said: “Van Persie? We’re waiting for buyers, if he wants to be sold.”
RVP left the Emirates Stadium in order to join Manchester United, which will not have pleases Gunners fans, and it is not known how welcomed he would be back in North-London.
I personally do not know how I will feel seeing him join, but believe I would be able to give him a chance to prove his worth to the side, mainly due to our strong need for a goalscorer to help take the reliance off of Olivier Giroud.
The Frenchman has always shown his best form when he has competition for his role, and Van Persie’s reputation could keep Olivier on his toes.
A number of other strike-targets look less and less likely to be sporting our famous red shirt this term, with Lacazette the latest name to have his sale ruled out, while Morata and Vardy have also had their supposed moves fizzle out.
Would you welcome RVP back? Was his exit too disrespectful to forgive?
