Lille's Gervinho now says he is coming to England

Lille striker Gervinho now says he wants to depart France and make his way to the English Premier League.

The Ivory Coast international previously said that he 'could convince players to stay with him at Lille' and that he would 'sign a contract extension or the club will sell him'.

But now the Arsenal and Newcastle United target has spoken to Skysports.com, saying that he is keen to come to England.

"My mind is made up, I am leaving," he said.

"I will soon meet the club and let them know, but they understand my feelings that I want to prove myself in a top league in Europe.

"My agents are moving things as I want, people know where my future lies, it is in England."
