Breaking News – Gervinho Signs For Arsenal


talkSport are reporting that Arsenal have indeed won the race to sign Lille and Ivory Coast winger/striker Gervinho for around £10M.

Gervinho – reports say he has signed for Arsenal

Newcastle were pursuing the winger-striker all year and last weekend it even looked like Newcastle were favorites to sign the player.

But it seems after Arsenal lost out on defender Phil Jones to Manchester United earlier in the week,  and Arsene Wenger has now won the race with Liverpool and Newcastle to sign the 24-year-old.

Last Monday, there was news all over the web that Arsenal were making a big move for the player, and in fact Arsenal were interested in the player four years ago when he was still at Belgium club, Beveren, before he signed for Le Mans.

And it looked even worse when he said at the time that a move to Arsenal would be the dream move for him. 🙁

So it seems the rich clubs get even richer and there has been news today that Newcastle have missed out on their top two known targets in Kevin Gameiro and Gervinho, with French International striker Kevin again saying he will sign for PSG or Spanish club Valencia.

I suppose we shouldn’t over-react but either of those players would have been great singings for Newcastle United.

But hey, let’s hope we go to Chelsea and make say a £10M bid (or less)  for Daniel Sturridge, who we think would be just great for Newcastle.

What do you think?

    As I suspected: no-one on twitter has a clue… just excited kids getting up early and regurgitating tabloid rumour as fact. Bless ’em.

    I think we should look at Giovanni Dos Santos. He’s still on the books at Tottenham but they always loan him out cause Hairy Redknob appears not to rate him. He’s 22 and would probably cost about 2mill. Very quick and exciting winger and if Pard’s could coax the best out of him he would be sheer class for us. With Ben arfa and Cabeye playing through balls to him i think its a match made in heaven. He’s class when he plays for Mexico and i’m sure he could find some form with us.

    it’s not offical. one week ago another newspaper wrote that gervinho’s agent told them that he was going to newcastle so we still have a chanse but it doesn’t look good…

    If Cabaye has passed his medical the deal was bound to go through, He was the only one who said he was coming here for definite.

    NO QUOTES IN ARTICLE? OR NOTHING OFFICIAL FROM ANY CLUB/S

    Take it with a pinch of salt but if this is true then a player we had a 30/40% chance to get with a great record and a dangerous player, strong and would fit in the EPL.

    Although id go for El Erabi if you want a scoring Winger (17 Goals) he will be alot cheaper, lets hope they KNOW we wouldnt get him and Gamiero and haved moved to other targets Carr and his team have identified.

    Talksport also said we had signed darren pratley on a 5 year deal… About as reliable as the dailyfail who are banned from nufc for making stuff up.

    Ed – Don’t be like TalkSport and mention it as fact when there is no real evidence, no quotes nothing official.

    im still pretty sure Gervinho is signing for us if im honest.. just because a think it would of been abit more noise if he was going to arsenal as they would be trying to cheer fans up with them possibly selling.. Nasri, Fabregas and Clichy and Diaby wearing a spurs shirt

    Atleast now we KNOW everyone on twatter is full of $hit and I for one will not be commenting on any other twatter comments regarding who we are signing, these people obviously have NO lives and aren’t supporters of this club if they are spreading bull$hit rumors like Gervinho & Gameiro to sign along with three other names today etc…. Get a life you lot! Sort yourselves out!
