Gervinho looks set for Arsenal exit

4 August 2013 10:43

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Gervinho is poised to leave Arsenal amid speculation he will join Roma.

The Ivory Coast international striker has failed to find the net on a regular basis since arriving from Lille in 2011, scoring nine Premier League goals in 46 appearances.

Marseille revealed an interest in signing Gervinho in June, with Roma also reportedly keen to hand the 26-year-old a chance to get his career back on track.

While Wenger did not name the club in pole position for Gervinho’s signature, he did stress that the forward is set to depart the Emirates Stadium.

"We are at the moment close to an agreement with a club where he should go," Wenger told the club’s official website following Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Napoli at the Emirates Cup.

Wenger also used the post-match press conference to give an update on the futures of Nicklas Bendtner and Marouane Chamakh, linked with the likes of Malaga and Crystal Palace respectively.

The Frenchman added: "Bendtner we are nowhere. At the moment he is completely here.

"Chamakh might go somewhere, it will be decided in the next 48 hours."
