LONDON: Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has no doubt the arrival of want-away Arsenal striker Robin van Persie would make the English Premier League champions a stronger side.
With just days to go until the start of the new season, Arsenal’s reported £20 million asking price for the striker, who scored 37 goals last season, has yet to be met. Manchester United appear to be leading the chasing pack for the Gunners captain but City skipper Kompany said the 29-year-old van Persie would be more than welcome at Eastlands.
“It’s very easy to say you want to play next to Robin van Persie,” said Kompany. “He’s a great player. He’s proved it so many times last season and any team he would play for he’d make it stronger.”
