Only details remain, so Roma could complete their €8m transfer for Arsenal’s Gervinho within hours.
Director Walter Sabatini has been in London for a few days conducting advanced negotiations with the Gunners.
According to Sky Sport Italia, it’s a done deal worth €8m plus performance-related bonuses – which translates as £6.9m.
The Ivory Coast international has already agreed terms for a four-year contract and will reunite with his old Lille boss Rudi Garcia.
It is reported Gervinho and Sabatini will fly out over the weekend to meet with Roma in their Boston pre-season training camp.
