Transfer News: Lyon interested in signing Arsenal striker Gervinho

French side Olympique Lyonnais are planning a £10m bid for Arsenal winger Gervinho who has failed to impress during his mixed time at the Emirates.

Arsenal bought Gervinho from Lille for a fee of around £10.5m which means if they sold the 25 year old Ivorian international they would be basically be able to redeem the amount which they paid for Gervinho.

Lyon are not the only team who is interested in Gervinho with Galatasaray also gearing up for a move.

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger could be tempted to sell the winger as many other names such as Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud considered regular starters.

Gervinho has made just 12 Premier League starts this season with 5 goals to his name as well.
