Tottenham Hotspur are no longer interested in Flamengo midfielder Gerson according to reports from Brazil. The midfielder was a target for Spurs in recent months as they looked to get him for an affordable fee.
However, Gremio stuck to their £43 million for the 23-year-old and the London club have decided to look at other alternatives. Gerson is highly rated in Brazil with his performances catching the attention of top clubs in Europe.
He has excellent ball retention skills, good passing ability and is the key playmaker for the Brazilian side. There are reports that Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund are keeping tabs on the player with a potential summer transfer on the cards.
Tottenham meanwhile have turned their attentions to West Ham midfielder Declan Rice with the club looking to strike a deal. Manager Jose Mourinho is set to be given money to spend in the summer and Rice is seen as an ideal signing for the club.
Gerson is a talented player and is likely to make a big-money move if he continues his good form in Brazil.
