Arsenal tie up Gervinho swoop

The Ivorian forward has been locked in talks with the Gunners over

the past week after the two clubs agreed a deal earlier in the

month. Now he has finalised his move from the French champions,

according to Wenger, who revealed the news as Arsenal arrived in

Malaysia ahead of their Asian pre-season tour. Gervinho did not

travel with Arsenal as part of their initial group and it remains

to be seen whether he will link up with the squad. Gervinho is

Arsenal’s second signing of the summer following on from the

capture of youngster Carl Jenkinson.
