The Netherlands skipper was relaxed about his future as he collected the Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year award on Thursday night, insisting no matter what happens during the rest of his career he would "always be a Gunner".
Van Persie, 28, is set to sit down with Arsenal at the end of the season for discussions over a contract extension, with another year left on his current deal.
Despite suggestions the Gunners would look to cash in on their captain - as they did earlier this season with contract rebel Samir Nasri who eventually was sold to Manchester City for £24 million - Wenger maintained that scenario was not on the horizon.
"Who would want to lose his best player? My desire and my wish is to find an agreement with Robin van Persie, extend the contract and stay with us for a longer time. Hopefully we can reach that," said Wenger.
"If that wouldn't happen, we will still want him to stay, but I am more focused on the first situation. I think what is important for us is that we find an agreement with him to be happy and to stay and finish his career here."
Wenger continued: "I cannot guarantee that it will go well, but I am quite confident. I believe Robin is committed to the club, I feel that the club has shown great commitment to him over the years and put great faith in him."
