Arsenal's pursuit of Brazilian winger Bernard could mean a departure for Gervinho if it comes to fruition.
With reports in multiple places indicating that Bernard will be in London to make the deal official as soon as Friday, questions arise about what his arrival might mean for Arsenal's current players. Capable of playing in multiple spots, Bernard could displace Gervinho (who would likely be transferred out), Aaron Ramsey (who would become a reserve) and/or challenge Santi Cazorla for some of his minutes. Given the price suggested, it seems likely that Bernard will start frequently so if this deal comes to fruition you can expect some serious impact. Tue, Jul 23, 2013 04:09:00 PM

Italian side AS Roma have been all over the rumor pages this summer and the club has now been linked to Arsenal winger Gervinho.

This may well be a case of 2+2=5 journalism but it may also be a case of new manager Rudi Garcia having a previous relationship with Gervinho and thinking he can get him back to his best. If the latter is the case it might be good news all around as Gervinho would certainly like to play more, Arsenal would certainly like him off the books and Roma certainly wouldn't mind buying low on a player with some talent that couldn't quite put it together at Arsenal.

Newcastle United, who tried to sign Gervinho before he chose Arsenal, are again interested in the player.

Gervinho has fallend down the pecking order at Arsenal. He would be a good complement to Newcastle's attack and could provide them the pace and unpredictability that they've lacked in recent seasons.
