Arsenal ready to build
Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood believes Robin van Persie is "very happy in London" and reassured the fans the club is ready to invest in the squad this summer.
Lukas Podolski is said to have completed a medical at Arsenal on Tuesday ahead of his summer switch from Cologne, and the Daily Star also believes the Gunners are ready to offer £30 million to sign Mario Gotze from Borussia Dortmund.
The future of Van Persie, whose contract expires in 2013, is seemingly dependent on Arsenal's willingness to invest in the squad this summer, and Hill-Wood has told the Daily Star he is hopeful the Dutchman will stay.
"I think Robin and his family are very happy in London and I don't think he is solely motivated by money as some players are," Hill-Wood said.
On potential signings, he added: "If we find the right person for the right position we are happy to buy. We have got enough to pay anything but silly prices."
Meanwhile, Andrei Arshavin has revealed he is eager to return to Emirates Stadium when his loan deal at Zenit St Petersburg expires but indicated that he wants to play first-team football.
"I want to come back," Arshavin said. "My family are comfortable in London, but every footballer wants to play."
