The transfer window promises to be eventful for Gervinho. The Parma striker, who came close to leaving for Qatar, is the priority of Benevento, in the Italian Serie A. According to the Italian press, Parma, the Ivorian international’s club, is demanding 10 million euros (6 billion FCfa) for the transaction. To win their bet, the club headed by former Italy international Felipe Inzaghi will have to pull out a big checkbook. At first glance, a fairly high sum for a 33-year-old striker. But the hidden goal of the Parmesans is that they still want to rely on the services of their Ivorian striker who is one of the key elements of the squad under coach Roberto d’Aversa.
Former JMG academician from Abdijan in Cote d’Ivoire is in his second season with Parma in the Italian Serie A. Since joining the club, he has played a total of 57 matches and scored 18 goals, including 7 for the current season.
