Van Persie scored 132 goals in 277 appearances for the Gunners from 2004 to 2012 but made a controversial £22.5million move to Manchester United which turned many Gooners against the Netherlands star.
However, with the north London outfit on the hunt for attacking reinforcements, a large section of supporters are backing the club to go after the 32-year-old following Fenerbahce’s announcement.
‘Van Persie? We’re waiting for buyers, if he wants to be sold,’ Fenerbahce president Azil Yildirim said.
Many are desperate for Wenger to splash the cash on a quality striker, especially after missing out on Leicester City man Jamie Vardy, to help ease the pressure on Olivier Giroud.
Here’s how some Arsenal supporters reacted to Yildirim’s revelation…
Arsenal should resign Vanpersie then he will give his best to win the title with Arsenal
