Gervinho: I'm going to Arsenal to win

Lille striker Gervinho claimed that his move to Arsenal has ''only a few details left to sort out'' and that is moving to the Gunners to win trophies.

• City move for Clichy, Nasri
• Denilson could stay
• Arsene Wenger playing waiting game
• Ahmedov linked to Arsenal

Gervinho, an Ivory Coast international, has been linked with a switch to London since winning the French league with Lille last season. And it will be a boost for Arsenal fans, who have now gone six years without silverware.

However, Arsenal's drought does not bother Gervinho, who insists the reason he is moving is to help them get back on top.

"I chose Arsenal because it's a young group within which I will be able to integrate easily," Gervinho said according to The Sun. "I could develop more over there. There's only a few details left to sort out."

Asked if it was a risk swapping first-team football at Lille for a place in a squad with more competition for places, the forward replied: "A risk? Not at all. I'm going to Arsenal to play. The best risk to take is to look to score goals and to play a lot.

"In football you have to take risks if you want to win. I'm going to Arsenal to win."

Arsenal's initial bid of £7 million had reportedly been rejected, but negotiations continue and a move is expected soon. Speaking to France Football, Gervinho also revealed he never had any doubt he would be moving to the Emirates Stadium.

"I had no hesitation. None. But in a transfer there's always a period of analysis and negotiations,'' he said. "All sides had to be satisfied so that things could develop smoothly.

"I'm going there to play, not to be on the bench. Arsenal love the game. And I love teams that love the game. The Premier League is a notch above [the rest]. It's maybe the best league in the world. I want to live that sensation."
