The Gunners’ attacking maestro has made his intention to leave the Emirates Stadium clear, and Arsene Wenger is considering selling the Netherlands international this summer.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus are circling as the north London side consider their option, with recent reports stating that the Italian side were ready to break the bank to sign the Dutch striker.
However, Milan-based agent Fabio Parisi has stated that he is almost certain that Juve have already wrapped up a deal for Van Persie.
“I think Juventus have had a signed contract with Van Persie for some time locked away in a notary’s desk,” he told Italian TV, translated to English by The Daily Mail.
“It is just my opinion, but I think there’s an eight out of 10 chance the Dutchman will join the Bianconeri.
“Juventus want to win and he is considered the ideal addition to achieve that. I don’t think Edin Dzeko is the right player for the Bianconeri,” he concluded.
Meanwhile Van Persie has continued to train in north London as a solution hangs in the balance.
