Gervinho and Mohamed Salah were unable to settle with Arsenal and Chelsea respectively, but the pair have found their feet with Roma.
The Giallorossi secured a 3-1 win over Empoli on Saturday night, with Gervinho producing an assist for Salah who finished emphatically.
Although the Ivorian had fallen out of favour in the Italian capital and appeared set for an exit this summer, injuries have led to him playing an important role for Rudi Garcia’s side again this season.
In addition, Salah has had a significant impact since his arrival in the summer and continues to impress with his energy, pace and finishing.
Roma have been tipped as one of the favourites for the Scudetto this season, and although they have failed to convince at times, they moved up to second place in the table with this win and sit just a point adrift of league leaders Fiorentina.
The Viola take on Napoli on Sunday afternoon while Juventus face Inter a few hours later in what is a huge day for Serie A.
