Cote d’Ivoire’s Gervinho signs for Al-Jazira


Ivory Coast winger Yao has reportedly joined UAE side after AS Roma accepted a €14 million plus bonuses bid from the Emirati club.

After leaving Arsenal to join AS Roma, Gervinho enjoyed a fruitful first season in the Serie A. However, after a lackluster second season, the Giallorossi were open to moving on from the winger.

Gervinho was a staple in the Ivory Coast side who won their second AFCON championship in 2015, and he will play an important role in the 2017 AFCON qualifiers that begin this weekend.

Ivory Coast was drawn into Group I for the qualifiers, along with Sudan, Gabon, and Sierra Leone. It should be noted that Les Éléphants were ranked as the second best African team in the latest edition of the FIFA Rankings, after only Algeria.

Egypt. Arsenal. UNC. Al Ahly. In that order.
