Gervinho arrived from Lille this season only to witness the exits of key players like Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy, with skipper Robin van Persie reportedly set to join the departing lot in January.
But the former Lille star, who believes he can help the Gunners end their protracted trophy drought, is unfazed, insisting it's the way of the game.
"I wanted to come here and want to win lots of trophies here. The players here are very good players, that's why they're here. I've got faith in my friends, I've got faith in the management of the club and these people are all part of such a great club as Arsenal. I've got great confidence in the team and everything for this season and for years to come."
The 24-year-old also disclosed that he was happily settling down to life at the club and the English game.
"I'm happy to be in England, but I've really had to adapt to the team and that's been the case from the start. Regarding English football, that will come in due course, but for me the main thing is adapting to the style of play of the team and I think that is happening as I get used to my team-mates."
