Gervinho 'Chose' Arsenal

Gervinho 'Chose' Arsenal

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.'

Can't say I'm too excited about this one. Others go for top Brazilian talents like Neymar. We go for French Ivorians with a Brazilian name!

First some fans say that we are dont buy anyone. We then buy a forward who helped his club win the French title last season, who has a goal in every 2.4 games for his last club besides an assist for every goal he scores. He is then slated for his name. I've watched Gervinho and Hazard all of last season and think the former is well suited for us. He doesnt shirk responsibility, is physically strong, quick and creative.

He certainly needs to be given a fair shout! He looks pretty good to me, but as with all players a new signing comes with the risk that he might not fit, but it's a start to putting some balance into this team. Hopefully this signals the start of a busy summer.

I am rarely excited about Wengers signings. I was happy but not bragging about Henry, Ljungberg, Viera, Rvp, TV5 & Cesc. Some of the ones that got me going were Walcott, Arshavin, Rosicky. No disrespect but I think we need to see this guy play for us before we judge him.

Plus I can think of a few Ivorians who have been great in the PL of late...I can think of few Brazilians.

So who is going to hazard a guess, when he starts to tippy tappy inside the 6 yard box? Im guessing ill take him around 3 months to start passing backwards when in a shooting position.
