Roma send Gerson to Lille

Roma are on the verge of loaning Brazilian midfielder Gerson to Lille with an option to buy, according to French reports.

The 19-year-old was signed from Fluminense in July for €16.6m, but has barely featured in the Giallorossi jersey.

He managed 11 appearances, six of them in the Europa League, for a grand total of 401 minutes of football.

According to L’Equipe and La Voix du Nord, Lille met with Roma this week to discuss bringing Gerson to France.

The deal is believed to be close to a conclusion, arriving on loan with an option to buy.

Roma have just signed Clement Grenier from Olympique Lyonnais, on loan with option to buy for €3.5m.
