French giants Marseille are believed to be showing considerable interest in Arsenal attacker Gervinho.

The 26-year old Ivory Coast international has only been a bit-part player for the Gunners since joining from Lille in 2011 but has emerged as a target for Les Phoceens according to OM manager Elie Baup.

"This is a profile that interests us, yes. We want flank players, with dribbling, passing and scoring and Gervinho has this profile," he told 10 Sport.

As well as Marseille, Gervinho has also been linked with a Lille return and has attracted interest from Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
