Lille forward, Gervinho claims he chose Arsenal because he believe's he's a good fit for this Arsenal team.
Another of those "worst kept secrets in football", Gervinho has been on the cards for a transfer to Arsenal for quite some time, and while nothing has been made official, the move has been nailed on for a while now.
Today the player spoke about the move,
'I chose Arsenal because it's a young group within which I will be able to integrate easily, I could develop more over there. There's only a few details left to sort out.'
'A risk? Not at all. I'm going to Arsenal to play. The best risk to take is to look to score goals and to play a lot. I chose Arsenal because it's a young group within which I will be able to integrate easily. In football you have to take risks if you want to win. I'm going to Arsenal to win.'
'I had no hesitation, none. But in a transfer there's always a period of analysis and negotiations. All sides had to be satisfied so that things could develop smoothly.
'I'm going there to play, not to be on the bench. Arsenal love the game. And I love teams that love the game. The Premier League is a notch above. It's maybe the best league in the world. I want to live that sensation.'
