Gervinho urges Arsenal to spend on Hazard

Arsenal forward Gervinho has urged his club to splash the cash on Lille midfielder Eden Hazard in January, Metro reports.

The Ivorian played alongside Hazard at LOSC last season and the combination of the two brought Lille the French title. Gervinho made the move to Arsenal this summer for £10.6m and Hazard, despite heavy speculation, remained at the Stade Metropole.

Gervinho now wants his former teammate to ignore the advances of Barcelona and Real Madrid and make the switch to the Emirates Stadium. Hazard stated earlier this week that he was ready to move to the next level and the 20 year old is rated as one of the most promising young talents in Europe.

‘Hazard is a young player with enormous quality. He has everything it takes to triumph in England. Eden has learned a lot at Lille and I believe he could succeed abroad’, Gervinho said.
