Zicu arrives at Parma on loan from Internazionale as part of the deal that takes Adriano in the other direction.
The young forward is hoping to make an impact, but is quick to point out that he is still at an early stage in Italian football.
"I am hoping to make the kind of impact that Mutu (pictured) had," said the confident Romanian.
"Don't forget that Mutu played at Parma in his fourth year in Italy and I have just arrived - so please allow me some time.
"I have spoken to Mutu and Cristian Chivu and they gave me a lot of advice.
"I signed the contract with very little thought. It was far too big an opportunity to miss.
"I play on the right-hand side of attack and take special pleasure in creating goals and taking free-kicks."
