Robin van Persie could be set for a dramatic return to Arsenal at the end of the season after his agent reportedly met with Arsene Wenger to discuss a move.

Van Persie, who forced a move to Manchester United last year, enjoyed a superb opening season at Old Trafford – firing the club to the Premier League title.

But the Dutchman has reportedly become frustrated with life under new manager David Moyes, and is now angling for a switch back to Arsenal.

According to Sky Italia, Wenger met Van Persie’s representative in London late last month where it was made clear that Van Persie wants to leave United – and go back to the Gunners.

Wenger is believed to be now considering his next move, but with United planning an overhaul of their squad in the summer, the 30-year-old could be made available.

The Arsenal manager was coy this week when asked if he would consider re-signing Van Persie and it is thought that he has raised the prospect of their former captain returning with senior players, to see whether he would be welcomed back.
