The Ivory Coast was more renowned for frustrating during his two years in north London, managing just 11 goals in 63 games.
But life with Parma in Serie A is a little better, with Gervinho hitting two goals in four games now.
His first came in a 2-1 defeat to Juventus earlier this month and his second is one to remember as Gervinho beat a number of Cagliari players today before belting home via the post:

Wow! How good is that?
Parma lead 2-0 in the game and that should take them up into mid table after five Serie A games.
With quality like that from Gervinho on a consistent basis, it should make for a very entertaining season for Parma supporters.
Then again, he could play like he did on the main at Arsenal and then it might not be such a good campaign.
