Marseille have contacted Arsenal about a possible loan deal for struggling Gervinho with a view to a permanent move in the future. Arsenal have already cleared out most of the “deadwood” this summer and Gervinho is seen by fans as one of the next players who must go because of his poor form since he arrived at the club.

Sebastian Squillaci, Andrey Arshavin and Denilson have already left the club which has freed up the wage bill a bit to fund moves for new players, which is why Arsenal seem to be active at the moment in the transfer window.

Of the “deadwood” left at the club Gervinho, Chamakh and Nicklas Bendtner are on the highest wages and the fans will want to see the back of them as soon as possible. Bendtner has already spent the last two seasons out on loan because no club has been interested enough to make a proper move for him. I fear the same thing will happen with Gervinho if Arsenal do send him on loan to Marseille rather than look for a transfer deal.

Gervinho is still thought of highly in France because of his time at Lille where he formed a great partnership with Moussa Sow and Eden Hazard and became one of the most sought after players in Europe. He also impressed at the 2010 world cup for the Ivory Coast but has obviously failed to shine at Arsenal in the last couple of seasons.

Arsene Wenger should try and get rid of Gervinho, Bendtner, Chamakh, Andre Santos and more to free up funds for top, top players like Fabregas and Rooney who have been linked with moves recently. If the remaining “deadwood” players are only sent on loan again, they will remain a burden to the club for years to come.

5 thoughts on “Gervinho could soon join the dead wood leaving Arsenal

  1. Why do you people use the derogatory and insulting term ‘dead wood’, what is wrong with ‘unwanted’ or similar. It is disrespectful, rude and unnecessary. They may not be good enough in one way or another or not needed by the club but that is no excuse. You wouldn’t like being referred to as dead wood so please show a bit of respect for others.

  2. Admin, Why do you think he excels everywhere else but not in front of fans like you?

    The problem is too many deadwood supporters!

    He is going nowhere, I can’t wait for you to eat these words when GiGi is scoring important goals for us next season.


  3. Good riddance… brainless, mindless, headless chicken! Useless and not good enough for Arsenal. We should sell him to Tottenham so he can waste more chances than Ade-Bye-Whore!

  4. Excellent! And hopefully with Fallaini or Wanyama coming in Ramsey can join him out the door. Fallaini scored 11 goals and had 5 assists last season in 31 appearances. Ramsey manages a goal and 2 assists in 35 appearances…abysmal! We got better offensive production from Koscielny at center back. Lol!

  5. It sounds hard, but I have no problem being disrespectful of players like Gervinho. There are few more frustrating players. You suspect the talent is there if he only had a football brain.
