Arsenal Football Club want Robin van Persie to sign a new contract before Christmas.
The Holland international is inside the final two years of his current deal at the Emirates Stadium, and there is a fear he could be the next big-name departure.
Real Madrid have been heavily linked with the striker, as have Manchester City, who famously took Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy from the Gunners this summer.
Both players had just twelve months left on their contracts, and to avoid a similar situation, the Londoners will offer van Persie an extended stay worth £90,000-per-week.
