Arsenal have today (Monday) confirmed the signing of Gervinho from Lille. The striker is now officially an Arsenal player and he is glad to have finally clinched his dream move.

Gervinho told “It’s a great feeling to be an Arsenal player. I’m very happy. I’ve always dreamed to play for this Club. I’ve achieved this dream now and I am so happy. It’s one of the most beautiful days of my life.

“I’m very happy to have the chance to work with Arsène Wenger. I came here because I believe that he can improve my game and help me reach another level, but the most important thing for me is that I bring a lot to the team for whom I’m playing.”

Wenger is also delighted with the capture of his new striker as he said, “Gervinho is a player that can play in a number of positions up front,” said the Gunners boss. “He can play on the right, on the left and through the middle.

“He has qualities that I find very important, like his movement off the ball. He has the qualities we like technically.

“He is good one against one, he is strong and was the best provider in the French league with assists and he scored 15 goals. I think he is a very good addition to the squad.”

Now with Gervinho signed, together with Jenkinson arriving first in the summer, who are Arsenal going to sign next? You would have to think that a central defender is top of the list and it would be nice to get our signings done now so that they can gel with the rest of the squad during pre-season training.
