Roma have made a formal £6.9million offer for Arsenal striker Gervinho.

Lyon are also considering an offer for the 26-year-old – who is not on the club’s pre-season tour of Asia – and could include their French international midfielder Yoan Gourcuff going the other way.

Gourcuff, 27, is keen to leave, and Arsenal want a midfielder.
