Gervino has travelled to Italy for a medical with Serie A giants Roma.
The Ivorian winger will team up with his old boss, Rudi Garcia, who brought the best of him while he was at Lille.
Gazzetta.it quotes the soon to be former Arsenal man as saying, “I’m happy to be here, it was my dream.”
Arsenal are expected to receive a fee of around €8m, and Gervinho will sign a four year deal with the Italian side.
Official confirmation of his departure is expected later today or early tomorrow.
