The 24 year old scored 15 goals for Lille in the last season and has said in the past that he wants to play in the Champions League and particularly in Arsenal. Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle were also interested in the player. The price is listed at about 10 million.
Will Gervinho transfer to Arsenal? It seems likely at this point. It is rumoured that Arsenal had a bid of about 8 million rejected in the January transfer window so the current situation will depend on how much Wenger is prepared to offer for the player.
