Van Persie is to be omitted from
Van Persie is also the subject of serious interest from both Juventus and
United, though, indicated that they were not even prepared to get near a transfer fee of £15m for last season's leading Premier League goalscorer.
Arsenal will not even listen to offers below £20m and, after getting £24m last summer for Samir Nasri, are holding out for a fee in excess of £25m.
Van Persie is interested in the option of Juventus but the financial firepower of City still make them favourites. City want to find buyers for some of their strikers, including Emmanuel Adebayor and Roque Santa Cruz, before tabling a formal offer for Van Persie.
