FOOTBALL : Arsenal complete £8m transfer deal !!

But ... Arsenal are SELLING .. not buying !

Gervinho has joined Italian Serie A side Roma from Arsenal in an £8m deal.

(You had to be mad to think that Wenger had finally prised open his chequebook !!)

Gervinho was signed from Lille by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger in 2011, but managed only four goals in his first season before scoring seven last season. But the Ivory Coast international striker found his first-team opportunities limited at the Emirates last season, mainly because he seemed to waste about five times as many chances as he converted.

An Arsenal statement read: "Everyone would like to thank Gervinho for his contribution to the club and wish him well for his future career."

Gervinho is the 13th signing this summer by Roma coach Rudi Garcia, whose side finished sixth in Serie A last season. THIRTEEN new players !!!
