Roma are struggling to agree a deal with Arsenal for Gervinho.
New Giallorossi coach Rudi Garcia, who bossed Gervinho during his time in charge of Lille, is keen to snap up the forward this summer and Arsenal are thought to be open to doing a deal.
Roma have already bid €3m for the Ivory Coast international and, despite increasing that closer to a total of €8m, have still not had any joy.
Indeed, according to Sky Italia, Roma are struggling to find an agreement with Arsenal.
Gervinho remained at home from Arsenal’s pre-season tour, with the club citing sickness as the reason.
However, first team football could be at a premium for the player next season, especially if Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is successful in his summer recruitment plans.
Gervinho joined Arsenal from Lille in the summer of 2011.
