Gervinho wants Arsenal stay

The 26-year-old has set his sights on earning a regular spot in Arsene Wenger's first team next season after starting just 12 Premier League games for the Gunners last term
Arsenal forward Gervinho insists he has no intention of leaving the club this summer despite a frustrating campaign with the Gunners.

The 26-year-old started just 12 Premier League games last season and struggled to secure a regular place in Arsene Wenger's side.

The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a return to his former club Lille, as well as a move to Turkish side Fenerbahce, but the forward eager to prove his worth in north London.

"I have a contract until 2015 with Arsenal and I intend to honour it," Gervinho told Sky Sports.

"There is always speculation in the papers, 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."

Gervinho scored just five Premier League goals in 18 appearances in the 2012-13 season, following on the back of an underwhelming maiden season in England.
