Gervinho Medical At Arsenal
The long awaited signing of Gervinho is to be announced this afternoon, with the Ivory Coast striker undergoing a medical at Arsenal. Terms between the player and the between the clubs have been agreed, so unless there is something that crops up in the medical, Gervinho will be our first signing of the summer.
Gervinho will add pace, aggression and flexibility, as he will be able to play anywhere along the front-line. A good addition the squad.
Arsenal fans have been looking forward to a some good news this summer, and hopefully this is only the start of the buying season for Arsenal.
It has been reported that Nasri gave Gervinho glowing reports about Arsenal and that they are friends. Could this be the signing that proves to Nasri that we are moving in the right direction or do we need to bring in Cahill too before Nasri commits to a new contract, even if the contract is conditional as were the Henry and Cole contracts.
Any other signings will be either this week, prior to the Asia tour or in a fortnights time when the squad returns.
