Now that Arsene Wenger has committed his future at Arsenal, the Frenchman "dreams" that Robin van Persie will also follow his example.

It may be wishful thinking of Wenger but the Gunners faithful coudn't agree more.
"My dream is that van Persie stays until the end of his career at this club. I will do the maximum I can to try to convince him and I hope I will manage to do that," said Wenger.

Van Persie's current deal expires at the end of the 2012-13 season leading to speculation over his future.
Having seen Samir Nasri leave this summer after entering the final 12 months of his contract, Arsenal wouldn't want to lose their skipper in similar manner.

The Dutch international has been in scintillating form for the Gunners this season, netting 31 Premier League goals in 2011.

"He is exceptional and has something that you cannot give to people," said Wenger after van Persie starred in their 2-1 win over Norwich.

"For the second goal, he finished with a chip on his right foot - and I have never seen a bigger left-footed player than Robin van Persie. He always makes the right decisions in a fraction of a second when there is little time available, that makes him exceptional."
