Emirates Stadium attacker wanted by Istanbul side.
The Daily Express believe Arsenal may be ready to cut their losses and accept a £12m offer from Turkish giants Galatasaray for Gunners attacker Gervinho.
The 25 year old cost the North London club £10.8m when they purchased him from Lille in the summer of 2011 and the Ivory Coast international has failed to make a consistent impact in Arsene Wenger’s starting eleven so could well be considered a player worth cashing in on.
Galatasaray may be keen to bring Gervinho to Istanbul to unite with fellow countrymen Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Eboue and may have been impressed by the Arsenal man’s performances at the 2013 African Nations Cup Finals, which were far more effective to the displays he has put in for his club side.
Gervinho’s last Premier League start came in early December and has managed just one top tier goal since September and as such a bid of this magnitude would surely be one Arsenal will readily consider.
Gervinho has scored a total of ten goals in 57 appearances for Arsenal.
