Tottenham to battle Chelsea in pursuit of Gerson

According to a report from Fox Sports Brazil (h/t Express), Chelsea have joined Tottenham Hotspur in pursuit of Flamengo midfielder Gerson.

The 22-year-old Flamengo midfielder failed to make much of an impact during his previous stint in Europe with AS Roma and Fiorentna. But since returning to Brazil with Flamengo, Gerson’s stock is on the rise. He played a key role in the club’s Copa Libertadores success last season.

Reports even claimed that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy was ready to sanction a £16m move for the Brazilian midfield ace. And now, Chelsea have also joined Tottenham in pursuit of the 23-year-old. (h/t Express)

Chelsea have been making quite the wave in the transfer market already. Having secured the transfer of Hakim Ziyech, they are also inching close to the signing of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig. Now, they also have their sights on acquiring the services of Gerson. (h/t Express)

While Tottenham have no pressing need of a new central midfielder at the moment, Gerson’s dynamism and energy could come in very handy for us. The 23-year-old is a powerhouse of a midfielder and would add more depth and quality to the ranks, while also acting as a long-term replacement for Moussa Sissoko who is not getting any younger.

Earlier reports had claimed that Flamengo weren’t looking to sell their star midfielder. And now, with Chelsea also joining the hunt, signing him just got even more difficult.

It will be interesting to see if we do go after him in the upcoming transfer window. Although the chances are that we hold off on his pursuit and look bolster, other areas of the squad that are in more urgent need of reinformcements.
