Sorry, no sources, because they are all in Dutch, but his contract expires this summer and Arsenal scouts have watched all of his matches and supposedly Wenger is very interested. Some info on Van Persie from Uefa.com Robin van Persie Left-winger Robin van Persie became one of the few teenagers to play in - and win - a major European club final when he was part of the Feyenoord side which beat BV Borussia Dortmund to lift the 2001/02 UEFA Cup. Just 18, he had made only ten league appearances at the time, having been drafted in from the youth ranks during an injury crisis. But this did not prevent him playing the first hour against Dortmund, having already featured in every round following the last-16 tie against Rangers FC. Van Persie, who had signed a three-and-a-half-year contract in January 2002, subsequently took second place in Voetbal International magazine's young player of the year poll. Capped by the Netherlands at under-19 level, he has shown the potential to become the latest in a line of great Dutch wide men, with his exciting runs and incisive crosses. All this despite intense back pain which required him to spend summer 2002 in plaster, although he would be back for the start of the new season.
