Now the Arsenal forward is again subject to speculation.
He has dismissed reports which say that he could be set to leave the club this summer, but Pardew will be in line if the Gunners decide to move him on.
"He is a class player who would fit in well at Newcastle," said the Toon boss.
Gervinho has been linked with Turkish side Fenerbache as well as his former club Lille in France.
But Gervinho said: "I have a contract until 2015 with Arsenal and I intend to honour it.
"There is always speculation in the papers, but I am looking forward to a good holiday and to come back to Arsenal.
"I want to win my place in the starting line-up week in, week out."
Gervinho has struggled since joining Arsenal in 2011 and is thought to be valued at 12m Euros.
