Gervinho has said that he hopes Robin van Persie signs a new contract to keep him at the club, because he wants to play with him for longer.

Speaking to Sky Sports the Ivorian said.

‘We always need our best players so a player like Robin, frankly, we need him to stay at the club. It would give me pleasure if he stayed. I have just arrived and I would like him to stay so I can play with him a while longer. Against Stoke, he came on and scored two goals. He is an excellent player and the team need him.’
