Arsenal flop Gervinho has moved to Italian side Roma for £8m.
The Ivory Coast forward failed to make an impression at the Emirates after arriving from Lille in 2011. He scored just four goals in his first season in English football, adding another seven last season.
The 26-year-old will now ply his trade in Serie A next season.
An Arsenal statement read: “Everyone would like to thank Gervinho for his contribution to the club and wish him well for his future career.”
Gervinho tweeted his thanks to Arsenal fans, staff and team-mates.
