The Dutchman, who has netted 17 times for the Gunners this season, has been linked with a move away from the club once his contract expires in 2013.
"I don't want the sale of Robin van Persie. Arsenal is a team that needs good footballers and leaders on the field," Gervinho told The Mirror.
"Robin is a player who pushes companions to work harder and give more effort during matches. He is a dream to play with.
"For me, when opponents see Robin on the other side, it is a huge psychological blow. I am always happy playing with him."
Arsenal travel to Swansea City in the Premier League on Sunday.
