Van Persie: I want to win Euro 2012 and then the Champions League

Robin Van Persie stated that he wants win Euro 2012 with the Netherlands, and then the Champions League - but refused to comment on his future at Arsenal despite speculation linking him with Juventus.

"Juventus are a great team," he told Tuttosport. "But I have agreed with Arsenal that I will not discuss my future."

The 28-year-old is entering the final year of his contract with the Gunners, and talks on a new deal did not progress before the striker joined up with the Netherlands squad for Euro 2012.

Van Persie has been linked with Manchester City and Juventus, and did little to reduce speculation over a move when asked about the links to the Serie A champions.

"All I can say is that it is my intention to have a great Euro 2012 and win it," he told Tottosport. "Then I want to win the Champions League.

"I've never felt so strong and I just want to continue winning. At this point in time all I want to do is focus on the European Championship. There will then be time to address other matters."

The striker was crowned both Players' Player of the Year and Football Writers' Player of the year last season after becoming the Premier League’s top scorer with 30 goals, helping the Gunners qualify in third place for next season's Champions League.

He struck two more goals in the Netherlands' 6-0 victory over Northern Ireland in its final warmup match ahead of Euro 2012.
