Arsene Wenger has revealed that Robin van Persie tried to arrange an Arsenal reunion in 2015, only for the Frenchman to turn down his plea due to concerns over the age of his squad.

The Dutch striker remains an unpopular figure in north London after his controversial departure from the club in 2012, opting against signing a new contract in favour of a move elsewhere.
