Arsene Wenger has confirmed the signing of Lille forward, Gervinho.

In true Arsenal tradition, the transfer of the Ivorian has been a slightly drawn out affair, or at least it appears that way, however Arsene Wenger has now given confirmation that the player has signed.

Reports over the weekend had suggested that the deal had stalled and Gervinho returned to France, though AW made it clear he sent him home to be with his family for a couple of days.

‘Gervinho has joined. He had a medical on Thursday.”

‘We sent him home for a couple of days because he has a family and children. He did not come because he has not had a session yet.’

Welcome to the club Gervinho, hope you have a long and prosperous career with us.
