Roma have announced that Gervinho has completed a transfer to Hebei China Fortune for an initial fee of €18million.
The Ivory Coast international heads to the Chinese Super League after spending two-and-a-half years in the Italian capital.
“AS Roma can confirm that forward Gervinho has joined Hebei China Fortune FC,” a Roma statement confirmed.
“The 28-year-old Ivorian has signed for the Chinese side on a permanent deal for a fee of €18 million.
“An additional €1m could be paid depending on the Chinese club’s and the player’s performances.”
Gervinho scored 26 times in 88 appearances for Roma after joining from Arsenal following the 2012-13 season.
He becomes the latest big-name arrival in the Chinese top flight this month. Earlier on Wednesday, Shanghai Shenhua completed a deal for Inter’s Fredy Guarin and Ramires’ move from Chelsea to Jiangsu Suning was also confirmed.
