Arsenal may be forced to sell Van Persie and Walcott to Manchester City?

Arsenal may be willing to offer Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott new contracts but are unable to match the level of wages that Manchester City or the top European sides such as Qatari owned Paris St Germain can offer.

This would be a big blow to Arsène Wenger and the club so soon after Cese Fabrigas left for Barcelona last season but with both just a year left on their contracts, the Gunners may have little choice.

Arsenal have put a £30 million valuation on striker Robin van Persie and while the club are reported to be willing to make Van Persie the highest earner in the club’s history with an offer around £130,000-a-week, should Manchester City come calling as Gunners chairman Peter Hill-Wood admitted that if another club offers Van Persie £250,000 a week, then Arsenal would not be able to compete.

Arsenal did business with Manchester City last season when Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy joined the Blues and should the club be unable to persuade Van Persie and Walcott to stay both could go to their Premier League rivals.
