Gervinho: Ivory Coast forward quiet on speculation over his future

Sky Bet

Gervinho has refused to comment on future as the battle to secure his signature continues.

French sources claim both Tottenham and Arsenal have had bids rejected for the Ivory Coast international in the last 48 hours.

Newcastle, Liverpool and Manchester City are also being linked with the highly-rated forward - who revealed to skysports.com earlier this week that he was set to leave French champions Lille.

The media in France also claim that the player's preference is Arsenal or City - given he wants to play in the UEFA Champions League next season.

But the player has refused to elaborate further on his future as his representatives seek to finalise his next move.

"I have no comment to make at the moment," he told skysports.com.

"I have already made myself clear enough. Things will be sorted out sooner or later, I want to enjoy my summer."

Quality

Gervinho, meanwhile, has been encouraged to join Arsenal by Johan Djourou.

"Gervinho is a quality player and i would love him to join Arsenal," said Swiss international Djourou, who was born in Ivory Coast.

"He can be a good player for us, he can play in any position in the offensive area, the fans will love him because he is an exciting player."
