Although not yet confirmed by the club… all major tabloids and news sources have confirmed that we’ve now signed the Ivory Coast player of the year, the Brazilian sounding Gervinho…
Let’s check out what the loathsome Daily Mail had to say…
?Arsenal are finally set to deliver a piece of good news to their fans by confirming the £11.2m signing of Lille forward Gervinho. The Ivorian will finally be unveiled by the Gunners tomorrow after almost a month of wrangling with the French champions, and will jet off with his new team-mates on a tour of Asia early next week.
So if that’s to be believed, in absence of any official word from the club, then let’s presume it’s true.

The best risk to take is to look to score goals and to play a lot. In football you have to take risks if you want to win. I’m going to Arsenal to win.”The Premier League is a notch above. It’s maybe the best league in the world. I want to live that sensation. I’m going there to play, not to be on the bench. Arsenal love the game. And I love teams that love the game.”
Picking up on the “I could develop more over there”, let’s hope when he has fully developed he doesn’t turn into an Adebayor or Nasri and seek
