Barcelona are closing in on the signing of Fluminense starlet Gerson after the player rejected the chance to join Roma

The 18-year-old is one of the hottest young talents in Brazilian football and several big European sides have shown an interest in him.
Barca reportedly paid Fluminense €3m to secure a preference right on the teenager, but Roma jumped to the front of the queue after tabling a formal offer of €15m. However, the player’s father met Fluminense officials on Monday to tell them that he wants to reject Roma’s proposal as he has his heart set on moving to Barcelona instead.
Fluminense and Barca are now expected to put the finishing touches on a €12m deal over the coming days.
