Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to offload Gervinho according to the Daily Mirror.

The Ivory Coast striker is unlikely to feature heavily in the plans of the Gunners manager this season and it is believed that Italian club Roma are ready to spend £6.5million on him.

26-year old Gervinho cost Arsenal £11m when he arrived from Lille in July 2011 but has scored just 11 goals in 63 appearances for the North Londoners.
