Official: Gerson loaned to Fiorentina

Roma midfielder Gerson has joined Fiorentina on a season long loan, but it doesn’t appear there is an option to buy.

The Brazilian struggled for playing time under Eusebio Di Francesco last season, and it was reported in recent days that he was close to joining the Tuscans.

“AS Roma can confirm that midfielder Gerson has joined ACF Fiorentina on loan,” a statement on the Giallorossi’s official website reads.

“The Brazilian, 21, joins La Viola on a season-long loan deal that runs until 30 June 2019.”

There is no mention of a buyout clause, and the Viola’s statement similarly doesn’t mention any option to buy.

“Fiorentina announces the signing of the player Gerson Santos Da Silva on a temporary basis from AS Roma.”
