Sabatini in London for Gervinho

Roma director Walter Sabatini has been spotted in London, hoping to tie up a deal for Arsenal forward Gervinho.

The Giallorossi have been heavily linked with the Ivorian striker in recent weeks, and it seems that a move could be close to completion.

Sky Sport Italia have filmed the board member in the English capital meeting with his counterparts from the Premier League club.

A transfer is expected to be announced within days, with a fee of around €8m likely.
