Posted on | July 11, 2011 | No Comments

Latest reports from Premier League suggest that Arsenal have completed the signing of Gervinho from France champions Lille.

Gervinho will join the squad only after his new teammates will finish the pre-season tour. The 24 years old will start the fitness training in London as he has not trained for a few weeks.

The transfer fee is around €12 millions. The Ivory Coast player helped his former side to win the title in Ligue One with 15 goals and 10 assists.

Gervinho is the first important signing of the year for Arsene Wenger. The French manager is trying to convince some of his important players to remain with the club.

Arsenal have not won any trophy in the last six seasons and some of the key players expressed their desire to leave the club in order to find the glory elsewhere. Narsi and Fabregas are the most notable.

Even if the last two will not leave the club there will be some important changes as Wenger will try to strengthen the squad.
