Strikers Lukas Podolski (£8.5m) and Olivier Giroud (£8.7m) have been added to the ranks by Arsene Wenger, but only the most optimistic Gunners will foresee either replicating Van Persie's haul of 30 goals last season, which saw him rack up a remarkable 310 points.
Podolski netted 19 times in Bundesliga last term, while Giroud led Montpellier to their first ever Ligue 1 title with 21 goals.
Santi Cazorla scored nine goals for Malaga last season and should be set to take set-pieces for the Gunners if Van Persie does leave.
Wenger's backline struggles to appeal after conceding 32 times on the road last season, with Thomas Vermaelen (£7.6m) the most appeal with his knack for netting, scoring six times last term.
