Arsène Wenger admits that Arsenal are in 'no man's land' over their pursuit of compensation for Robin van Persie's injury.

The Dutch forward suffered ankle ligament damage during an international friendly in November and could miss the rest of the season as a result.

Wenger revealed last month that Arsenal would seek compensation from the Dutch Football Association for the loss of Van Persie but the Club has yet to make progress with their claim.

"There is nothing there, we are a little bit in no-man's land at the moment," said Wenger.

"Why? Because for the [international] friendlies it is very difficult to get anywhere.

"We are still in enquiry [at the moment]."
