Roberto Mancini has responded to talk that he is weighing up an offer for Robin Van Persie. The Daily Mail have the Manchester City manager quoted as saying that he believes a deal for the Arsenal striker, in the region of £25 million, is possible given the current contract issues he is having with the club.
The English champions are no strangers to the Arsenal transfer list having signed Samir Nasri, Gael Clichy, Kolo Toure and Emmanuel Adebayor in the previous few seasons from the North London club. But this time it could prove a little more difficult with Arsene Wenger fighting tooth and nail to keep Van Persie at the Emirates. The striker found the net 30 times last season in 38 league games.
