Arsenal forward Gervinho is being linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium to Turkish giants Galatasaray. 

The Turkish club are reported to be readying a £12million bid for the striker to join up with fellow compatriots Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Eboue in Istanbul, according to the Daily Express. 

The 25-year-old has failed to impress since his switch from Lille in 2011 and the Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger may be tempted to cut his losses on the player. 

The Ivory Coast international started the season brightly in north London scoring five goals in his first seven games, but a failure to continue that form and going away for the African Cup of Nations has seen the player fall down the pecking order.

Gervinho has only netted eight goals in 42 appearances for the Gunners which has seen the Emirates crowd grow increasingly frustrated with the £10.8million signing. 

Galatasaray want the attacker to become their next big-name signing and will hope that they can gain the players signature.

Although the player is contracted until 2015, Wenger may be looking to free up some funds after reports linking Arsenal with a £25million move for Montenegrin striker, Stevan Jovetic
