A glistening Premier League career saw the Netherlands international bag 144 goals, win consecutive Golden Boots and lift the 2012/13 Premier League title with Manchester United.
But the 32-year-old left the Red Devils last summer following two underwhelming campaigns at Old Trafford, signing for Fenerbahce in a £4million deal.
The Turkish side are reluctant to lose RVP after already parting with their other high-profile talent Nani, who moved to Valencia earlier this week.
However, the Dutch assassin wants to return to the Premier League after struggling to settle in Turkey and it appears his services have been offered to West Ham.
The Hammers are in the market for a star-studded centre-forward and van Persie was willing to accept a significant pay-cut on his current £240k per-week earnings.
Nonetheless, West Ham have rejected the chance to sign the ageing front-man.
