Juventus director Beppe Marotta hints that Arsenal striker Robin van Persie is on the club's radar.

Juventus director Beppe Marotta has fuelled speculation regarding Robin van Persie's future after expressing his admiration of the Arsenal striker.

The 28-year-old, who will enter the final year of his contract in the summer, is due to sit down with the Gunners at the end of the season to discuss his options.

"[Van Persie] is among the most complete players around, but he still has a year on his contract with Arsenal and so I can only express an opinion on his qualities," Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

"I don't feel like naming targets, as that would be unfair for their clubs and the players."

The Dutchman has been linked to the likes of Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona over the course of the season.
