Olympique de Marseille seem close to signing their first recruit. In the pipes for a few days, the hypothesis of a transfer from Gerson to Marseille is taking more and more thickness according to the Brazilian newspaper O Globo. While the negotiations between Flamengo and OM have lasted for several days, the Brazilian midfielder, impatient to evolve under the orders of Jorge Sampaoli, would have been convinced by the salary and sports proposal of the French club.
Flamengo is looking to get the best price
Especially since Flamengo, who is in permanent contact with the two agents Tulio de Melo and Pascal Carbon, would not have formulated a counter-proposal to convince him to stay and would be focused on the idea of obtaining the best possible price. for his attacking midfielder, who turns 24 today. There is talk of 25 million euros, to which would be added 5 million euros of bonus and a percentage on resale. An important price for a club which has only reached this level for Dimitri Payet and Kevin Strootman.
A very active relay player in the midfield, Gerson would integrate the Olympian rotation in a sector of play deemed too light by Sampaoli. Across the Atlantic, the Brazilian has already built a solid track record, with two local championships (2019 and 2020) and especially a Copa Libertadores (2019, against River Plate). In 2016, at the age of only 19, he had already tried to join Europe, playing at AS Roma then at Fiorentina, before returning to Brazil for three seasons.
