Transfer news: Vincent Kompany believes Robin van Persie would be a great signing for the Citizens
Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has hailed Arsenal star Robin van Persie.
The Dutchman has been linked with a move away from the Emirates after revealing that he does not want to sign an extension to his contract that expires next year.
Manchester United are also interested in the striker’s services but it appears that the Citizens are leading the race.
“He’s a player who has improved so much,” Kompany told reporters. “I started playing against him five or six years ago, but his performances last season were unbelievable.
“A player like this would be an incredible addition to any team that he joined, his movement is near perfection and the stats show his finishing.
“He has led by example at Arsenal so, yes, he is a great player.”
