Could the signing of Afellay convince RVP to stay at Arsenal?

Arsenal are thought to be plotting a move for Holland midfielder Ibrahim Afellay.

Afellay has a close friendship with Robin van Persie and signing Afellay could convince the want away striker to stay.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been a long-time admirer of the 26-year-old and tried to bring him to the Emirates Stadium back in 2010, before he opted to join the Catalan giants instead.

However, Afellay’s agent Rob Jansen is now claiming that his client is surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp.

Inter Milan are also rumoured to be interested in Afellay who is on the market for around £5m.

Van Persie will meet with manager Arsene Wenger this week to speak about his future.

    Arsenal better give the striker wat he wants, or make him stay and complete his contract

  11. Conrad says:

    No coz to me RVP’s intension is not trophies but rather money of which Arsenal don’t have.

  12. ali says:

    maybe but if he leaves we can get jovitec his great.

  13. edu says:

    arsenal boss should not waiste time to sign that boy called affeley

  14. Cass says:

    Why sign him we have de Ox, Walcott (if he stays) or Ryo – no imo he not needed and he wasn’t any thing special at de Euro, wat needed is another CB, back-up goalie for Szechny and another striker bcoz RVP is off. If Arsene wants him then Barca would want something in return i.e either Vermaelen or Koscielny.

  15. Ekemini josiah says:

    Arsenal board should bring in some xperince player 2 arsenal so dat AVP wil stay.

  16. Arsenal management should bring in experience players 2 capture de signiture of RVP. ‘Fearz’

    When Feb wanted to leave the fm promised to sign quality playersIinstead he went get more kids with potential. I think RVP has had enough of the fm and Arsenal. He wants to play for a team going places not a team playing attractve soccer and unable to win games and trophies.
    Of course no one is indspensable. The same applies to Wenger.
    He is fortunate to have survived for so long.If he fails to get the gunners firing,then imho,he shd be off before the axe falls on him.Football has changed and the third or fourth richest club aint willing to pay the market rate for quality players.By the time the ffp kicks in,it will be a different ball game.

    let him see out his contract and let him earn the trust nd respect of the fans back

  19. Albert celestine says:

    Arsenal fc should try and sign Afellani, because he is a fantastic and creative player, that will take on defenders from the wings at any time. Signing Afellani, will also help to convince Van persie to stay back at arsenal fc. (ARSENAL 4 LIFE)

    Arsene & his board are given most of their fans high BP,what is wrong with them,however we catch fish in water & we use thesame water to cook the fish.Therefore,wenger & his selfish board should sell who is suppose to be sell & buy who is ready & willing to take over his responsibity pls.
