Roma reportedly have an offer of £6.9m rejected by Arsenal for Ivory Coast international forward Gervinho.

Roma have reportedly tabled a fresh £6.92m offer for Arsenal forward Gervinho, as coach Rudi Garcia looks for a reunion with the Ivorian.

Gervinho was left out of Arsenal's pre-season tour of Asia because of sickness, with the absence also giving the 26-year-old time to consider his future.

New Roma boss Garcia formed a strong working relationship with Gervinho at his previous club Lille, but the Frenchman's attempts to sign his former starlet have been swiftly rejected by the Gunners, according to Sky Italia.

The 26-year-old managed six goals in 26 appearances for Arsene Wenger's side last season, but only netted twice after October.
