10. Gervinho – $60,000
He may have been a flop for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal, but the Ivory Coast’s Gervinho has been a revelation in Serie A since joining Roma. In his first season with the club Gervinho helped Roma win their first six league games by netting goals at vital moments. Gervinho is very much a confidence player. When things are going his way the pacy attacker will often look to beat his man and create opportunities for teammates. He is however not much of a defender and he has to have the right manager willing to play a system that allows him to have creative freedom in order for Gervinho to be a success. Gervinho looks to have finally put pen to paper on an on/off move to China that will likely see his wages increase dramatically.
