Wayne Rooney believes Arsenal striker Robin van Persie would be a great signing if he joined him at Manchester United.

United are leading the race fo sign the Holland international and Rooney would welcome him at Old Trafford.

"Of course he's a player that I admire," Rooney said in the Daily Mirror.

"He's a fantastic player. He's been amazing for Arsenal over many years. Last season was probably his best season of all. He scored a lot of goals.

"If he does come here he would be a great addition to the squad."

Asked if he and Van Persie could play together, Rooney added: "I'd like to think so - but you'd have to ask the manager about that.

"There's a lot of forwards here already with myself, [Danny] Welbeck, Chicharito and [Dimitar] Berbatov, who's still here.

"So there's a lot of forwards fighting for a place."
