Robin van Persie admits Juventus "are a great team" but has refused to discuss his future until after the European Championship.

The Netherlands international further fuelled reports he may leave the Gunners when he talked up Juve in an interview with Italian newspaper Tuttosport.

But otherwise the Arsenal captain has been muted on the subject of his future, instead focusing his energies on Euro 2012.

Van Persie's contract expires at the end of next season and he has not agreed an extension with Arsene Wenger's side yet.

This has alerted Europe's top clubs, with the Bianconeri leading the race for the classy striker's signature.

He was quoted in Tuttosport as saying: "My future? I have agreed with Arsenal not to discuss it.

"I can only talk of my intention to play in the Euros and win it and then continue to win in the Champions League.

"Juventus? They are a great team, for sure."

Van Persie had a prolific campaign for Arsenal, scoring 37 goals and making 15 assists in 47 games.
