Last week talkSPORT reported that Arsenal had signed Gervinho from Lille but nothing official has been said about this deal yet. But this morning, L’Equipe is saying that Gervinho has given Arsene Wenger his word that he will sign for Arsenal.

Many clubs across Europe are trying to come in with a late bid for the Lille striker but if Gervinho has given his word to Wenger that he will sign for us then I will take it. Anything can happen in the transfer world of football but I remain positive that Arsenal have gotten their man.

However, Gervinho’s agent has not confirmed any deal being done with Arsenal yet.

Seb Boisseau (Gervinho’s agent) said: “It is difficult for me to discuss the situation because it is confidential, but it is true that many clubs in England have contacted us concerning the availability of Gervinho.”

“But we have not only spoken to clubs in England, but also Italy, Germany, Spain and France. The player wants to leave Lille and his priority is a move to England, however, it is difficult for me to speak about one club for the player. He wants to leave and has contacts with England and he is determined to play in the Premier League next season.”

“I do not know,” continued Boisseau. “For the moment he wants to think about Arsenal, Manchester City, and other clubs. It is difficult for me to comment, as you have good information and sometimes wrong information, but it is not good for me to comment, or for the clubs, or for Lille.

“For the moment it is confidential, and we will wait until Gervinho makes an agreement with one club.”

“I think a decision will be made regarding his future by the end of the week.”

So this whole issue of confidentiality could mean that he is talking about Gervinho giving his word to Wenger. Only time will tell. Stay tuned.
