Various media reports in France suggest Gervinho is a target for Roma.
The Italian side are ready to make a move for the Ivorian who could link up with former manager, Rudi Garcia. The Frenchman was appointed Roma boss this summer, and it was under his tutelage at Lille that Gervinho flourished.
Having failed to convince consistently at Arsenal, the winger could be loaned for the season but it remains to be seen if we’re interested in that kind of a deal for a player who cost £8m two years ago.
He’s been strongly linked with a move back to France, and spoke of Marseille’s interest a few weeks ago, saying, “Marseille is one of the leading French clubs, and I have a good relationship with some people there. I can not say yes or no, but it is always flattering for a player to know that there are a lot of clubs who are interested in him.
He also failed to rule out a move from the Emirates, “If I want a new start, I will not fail to garner interest.”
With the club about to depart on the Asia tour, it remains to be seen if something will be done in the short-term, but there’s increasing smoke about his departure, if not yet any real fire.
