Many fans have been wondering why Gervinho is not an Arsenal player yet if the player underwent a successful medical last week and the two clubs have agreed a fee. It seems like bad luck is just following Arsenal this summer. Gervinho was expected to be on the plane with Arsenal that flies out to the Far East today (Sunday) for the clubs pre-season tour but after the team list was announced, Gervinho’s name was not there and that raised a lot of questions among the fans.
But The Independent is saying that the reason Gervinho is not an Arsenal player yet is because of visa problems. Gervinho had to go back to France and will not be able to return to England until a visa has been approved which is expected to take at least another seven days.
It is a pity as it would have been great for Wenger to have Gervinho on the tour so he could start getting used to his new team mates.
