Arsenal star Gervinho vows to stay and fight for place

Arsenal striker Gervinho has dismissed reports linking him with a move away from North London, reports The Sun.

The Ivory Coast striker has attracted interest from Turkish outfit Fenerbahce, and former employers Lille are also interested in taking the 26-year-old back to France.

Gervinho arrived at Arsenal in a £10.8m deal in July 2011, and insists that he remains happy at the Emirates, and wants to stay and see if Arsenal can capitalise on the turmoil and transition surrounding their rival clubs at the top of the Premier League and try to snatch the crown next season.

With Spurs still unsure about the future of star Gareth Bale, Liverpool doing battle with striker Luis Suarez, and with Chelsea, Man City and Man United all moving in to next season with new managers at the helm, there have been suggestions that the stability at Arsenal could prove a huge advantage to them going in to the new campaign.

The forward said: “I have a contract until 2015 with Arsenal and I intend to honour it. There is always speculation but I am looking forward to a good holiday and to come back to Arsenal.

“I want to win my place in the starting line-up week in, week out.”
