Arsenal target Gervinho admits he could stay at Lille

The 24-year-old has attracted the interested of several Premier League clubs, but has yet decide whether he will move on or stay put at the Ligue 1 champions
Lille attacker Gervinho has revealed that he has not yet made a decision about his future.

Both Newcastle and Arsenal are reportedly ready to make a £15.5 million offer for the 24-year-old, but the tricky forward could also decide to stay at his current club.

"Everything is still possible. We just won two trophies with Lille and will play Champions League football next year. The club are working on a very exciting project that is interesting for many people. I could convince players to stay here," Gervinho said to L'Equipe.

The former Beveren star has a contract until the summer of 2012 with Lille and has made it clear that he will either sign a new deal or move to another club.

"There is always a choice. Do I want to stay or should I leave? I still have a one-year contract and we are currently in talks. One thing is sure though: I will sign a contract extension or the club will sell me."

The Ivory Coast international has also been linked with clubs such as Liverpool, Fiorentina and Bayern Munich in the past couple of weeks.
