Gervinho: I'll work to be more clinical

Gervinho says he is determined to work harder to improve his efficiency in front of goal.

The Ivorian forward has enjoyed an impressive first season in English football, and has contributed four goals in 35 appearances.

The 24-year-old is satisfied with how he has adapted to life at Arsenal, but pledges to improve his goal rate next season.

"I am happy about my first season but I know I can do better," Gervinho told the Official Arsenal Programme.

"I have scored and given assists but I also created a few chances that I missed. If I had been more efficient, it would have been even better.

"I need to work hard at training to become more clinical in front of goal. I’m not worried though.

"People say that the second season is always better for a foreign player but I don’t think it will be much easier.

"Every game is tough for me because the level of competition is so high in the Premier League, and every time you have to be at your best."

*Signing Ozil is a signing Bergkamp type moment for Arsenal. It changes things utterly.*

If I had to rate his season so far, I'd give him a C+. Needs to improve substantially all around.

I expect to see him and ox start tomorrow. Thought he did well when he came on.

Quite like him, he is a menace with the ball at his feet, I think there's a lot, lot more to come from him.

Remember how poor Drogba's finishing was when he first came? Gervinho will improve.
