Gervinho says he’ll have a think about his future this summer as speculation continues to link the Ivorian with a link away from the club.
After his return from the African Cup of Nations, the former Lille man featured sporadically, scoring a couple, but wasn’t relied on in Arsenal’s last three games. And he says lack of playing time gives him pause for thought.
“It is true that I had little time to play on my return from the CAN,” he is quoted by footlille.com. “But it is the choice of the coach.
“Now, it’s the holidays. I’ll relax for a while and then after I will look to the future, to see what I should do. There are still three weeks before pre-season. I really have time to think about it later. If I want a new start, I will not fail to garner interest.
“Marseille is one of the leading French clubs, and I have a good relationship with some people there. I can not say yes or no, but it is always flattering for a player to know that there are a lot of clubs who are interested in him.”
It’s a bit of a change from his position a couple of weeks ago when he said he was going to stay and fight for his Arsenal place, but that’s the way things go in this silliest of seasons.
