Robin van Persie's agent Kees Vos has admitted to having met with Manchester City executive Brian Marwood.
Vos attended a game at the Etihad Stadium three months ago, but denies the reason for his visit concerned the future of his premier client.
Van Persie, who has one year remaining on his current contract, is yet to discuss terms over a new deal at Arsenal, after a season which saw him net 30 Premier League goals as the club reached the Champions League.
"Yes, I was a guest of Marwood at Manchester City, that is true," Vos told Goal.com. "It was about three months ago.
"I meet a lot of people. Why do I need to explain? I work for a company that has 450 clients and 350 international players.
"I am not just the agent for Robin. I also represent Thomas Vermaelen, Keisuke Honda, Jeremain Lens and Stefan de Vrij."
Despite denying talk he discussed Van Persie's possible move to City, confirmation of talks between the two parties with swell rumours of the Dutch striker leaving The Gunners this summer.
City are unlikely to let up as they seek domestic and European domination following their maiden Premier League success, and might look to bring Van Persie in to further enhance their attack.
The future of Carlos Tevez is still uncertain, after his brief return to the side following his six-month exile after a feud with manager Roberto Mancini.
Should they retain the Argentine, then a move for Van Persie would appear unlikely, especially with Edin Dzeko, Roque Santa Cruz and Emmanuel Adebayor all in reserve.
Arsenal's skipper is set to meet with manager Arsene Wenger and chief-executive Ivan Gazidis this week with a new deal top of agenda before the start of the European Championships.
The Gunners lost both Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri in similar circumstances last summer, with neither agreeing extensions to the 12-months remaining on their deals.
Both have since gone on to achieve success at City, and Arsenal fear the financial power of the Etihad Stadium club could prove decisive in seducing Van Persie.
The Dutchman won the Professional Footballers' Association Players' Player of the Year and Football Writers' Association Player of the Year awards this season after helping Arsenal finish third in the Premier League.
