Gervinho 'flattered' by Marseille interest

Arsenal forward Gervinho insists he has no intention of leaving the club this summer despite a frustrating campaign with the Gunners.

The 26-year-old started just 12 Premier League games last season and struggled to secure a regular place in Arsene Wenger's side.

The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a return to his former club Lille, as well as a move to Turkish side Fenerbahce, but the forward eager to prove his worth in north London.

"I have a contract until 2015 with Arsenal and I intend to honor it," Gervinho told Sky Sports. "There is always speculation in the papers, but I am looking forward to a good holiday and to come back to Arsenal.

"I want to win my place in the starting line-up week in, week out."

Gervinho scored just five Premier League goals in 18 appearances in the 2012-13 season, following on the back of an underwhelming maiden season in England.
