Gervinho is an Ivorian international, who’s known for his pace, dribbling, movement and has a good eye for goal. He has had two excellent seasons with Lille, where has scored 28 goals in 67 appearances in the Ligue 1, with this season his best yet, with 15 goals and 10 assists in 35 matches in the Ligue 1. That’s a decent scoring record, especially for a player that plays mostly on the wing. He can be a bit erratic with his decision making, but he’s improving vastly in that aspect. He’s a very talented player, who just keeps improving all the time, each season. I believe he’s an excellent player and a good buy for the Gunners.
To conclude, Welcome Gervinho!
