Robin van Persie could make a shock return to Arsenal after his current club, Fenerbahce, revealed that the striker would be leaving the club this summer.

The Dutchman, who joined the Turkish outfit last summer, has been unsettled at the club ever since his arrival, and The Mirror are reporting that his preferred move would be to the Premier League.

Earlier this week, Fenerbahce president Azil Yildirim said: "Van Persie? We're waiting for buyers, if he wants to be sold."

Van Persie  angered Arsenal fans after leaving them to join rivals Manchester United in 2012, where he won the Premier League in his first season under the management of Alex Ferguson.

The forward was Arsenal's captain before he left, and despite having an injury-hit eight-year spell at the club between 2004-2012, he scored 132 goals in 277 appearances.
