Gerson headache for Roma

Gerson is causing problems for Roma, as he will only accept a transfer to Flamengo, but the Brazilian club won’t reach the €10m asking price.

According to multiple sources including Sport Mediaset, Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, the midfielder has his heart set on Flamengo and will turn down any other destination.

He already has done, rejecting moves to Dynamo Moscow and Genoa over the last couple of weeks.

The issue is that Roma want at least €10m for the 22-year-old and Flamengo are not prepared to pay that sum.

Gerson has proved to be an expensive flop for the Giallorossi, purchased from Fluminense in 2016 at a cost of €18.6m.

He had a disappointing loan spell at Fiorentina in the 2018-19 season and is under contract through to June 2021.
