Man City lead race for Arsenal striker

Manchester City are reportedly leading the race to land Robin van Persie, if Arsenal are forced to sell their striker.

The Mirror reports that City are ahead of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, Juventus and Anzhi Makhachkala in the race to sign Van Persie.

City are ready to make an opening bid of 20million for Van Persie.

The Dutchman has just a year left on his current contract Arsenal.

Anzhi Makhachkala are reportedly prepared to offer Van Persie a massive 300,000-a-week deal, but the striker is now keen on a move to Russian football.
