Arsenal confident closing deal for Lille striker Gervinho

Arsenal are closing in on a deal for Lille striker Gervinho.

The Sun says the Gunners expect to clinch a £12million deal for Lille striker Gervinho in the next few days.

Lille have already rejected £10.5m bids from Arsenal and Tottenham, while Paris St Germain made a late player-plus-cash bid.

But general manager Frederic Pacquet admitted: "Gervinho wants to go to England and as a club we prefer to sell him abroad rather than to one of our rivals in France."
