Fluminense attacking midfielder Gerson Santos has landed in Rome to complete his move to Roma, although he can’t play until next year.
The 18-year-old is regarded as a hot prospect and has eight Brazil Under-20 caps, but the Giallorossi have already fulfilled their quota of non-EU players with the arrivals of Bosnian Edin Dzeko and Egyptian Mohamed Salah.
The youngster will be able to play from January onwards when calciomercato.it believe he will be loaned out, with Sampdoria and Bologna reportedly interested.
Gerson gave a statement of his ambition last night when he tweeted a picture of a shirt with his name and the number 10, currently occupied by club legend Francesco Totti.
