More Robin van Persie shirts were sold than any other Premier League player last season, according to the Premier League Season Review.

The Review adds that the Manchester United forward held off the Liverpool duo of Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez to reach the landmark.

Eden Hazard was next on the list, with new Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil rounding out the top 5.

A full list of the top 10, provided by the Daily Mail, presents a slight surprise: Shinji Kagawa makes the elite list.

Kagawa's appearance, however, is a reflection of the pull the United playmaker has in Asia and not a reflection of an up-and-down season with his club.  

Suarez is sure to drop out of the list this season, having left for Barcelona, and the likes of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez and Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas will be amongst the men to challenge for a spot on the next edition of the list.
