Barcelona is reportedly close to signing Gerson, a 23-year-old Brazilian midfielder, from Flamengo this summer.
Barcelona is closing in on the capture of Gerson in a €25 million deal, according to reports made by Alfredo Duro on Spanish outlet El Chiringuito TV.
Gerson has made 95 appearances for the Urubu so far, scoring six goals and assisting on ten occasions. His success has piqued the interest of major European clubs once more, with Barcelona keen to sign him ahead of the summer transfer window.
Barcelona is rumored to be interested in signing a central midfielder this summer, and for good reason.
Riqui Puig has been unable to win over Ronald Koeman and may be on his way out of Camp Nou ahead of the 2021/22 season, with Arsenal and Tottenham among the clubs involved.
What remains to be seen is if Barcelona will agree on a €25 million fee for Gerson or whether they will resume their hunt for a central midfielder. They may have decided on their final choice at this stage.
