Arsenal captain Robin van Persie has confirmed he will discuss his future at the club this week, but has refused to rule out a move, saying he'll love the club "whatever happens".

Van Persie is out of contract at the end of next season and has been unwilling to discuss a new deal until the end of the current campaign.

Arsenal insist they are confident of keeping the 28-year-old at the club next season, despite interest from a number of clubs including AC Milan, Barcelona, Juventus, Real Madrid, and newly crowned Premier League champions Manchester City.

Arsenal ensured they will be playing in next season's Champions League following a 3-2 win away to West Brom on a dramatic final day in the Premier League - a result that is likely to improve the Gunners' chances of persuading the Premier League's top goalscorer to stay at Emirates Stadium.

But Van Persie has refused to confirm he will still be an Arsenal player come the start of the 2012-13 campaign.

When asked about his future, he said: "You never know. Arsenal is a massive club, a great club.

"I have been playing here for eight years and I love this club. Whatever happens that will never change.

"We'll sit down next week. Arsenal is a massive club, whatever happens I'll always love this club."
