Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie's future has been long debated but the prolific striker has offered Arsenal fans the clearest indication yet that he intends to stay beyond this summer by modelling the club's new home kit.

The Dutch striker has just 12 months left to run on his Emirates contract and is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Gunners gaffer, Monsieur Arsene Wenger is confident his captain will commit himself to a long-term stay despite the fact that Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona are among the clubs waiting to make a move should he fail to sign.

The 28-year-old was the leading figure in the promotion for Arsenal's new home strip which has a prominent blue feature on the sleeves.

England forward Theo Walcott likes the addition, however, saying the design gives the Gunners 2012/13 kit a real British feel.

Team-mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who hopes to join Walcott in Roy Hodgson's 23-man England party at this summer's Euro 2012, feels that kit is really nice.

Will the new home kit bring good luck for the gunners? Only time will tell.
