Marseille midfielder Gerson is hoping that West Ham United come in with a bid for him ahead of the January transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Jeunes Footeux who claim that the 25-year-old’s negotiations with Flamengo have collapsed, and he wants the Hammers to come in for him.
West Ham manager David Moyes allegedly wants to bring Gerson to the London Stadium in the January transfer window, according to a report from Goal Brasil.
Moyes really needs to bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium this winter, with a big upgrade needed on Tomas Soucek.
And Gerson is someone who is obviously there to be signed, if Moyes and the Hammers board really want to make it happen…
Midfielder wants West Ham to bid for him
Jeunes Footeux claims that the Marseille ace is hoping for a bid to come in for him from the Hammers in January.
I believe that Gerson would be a very smart addition to Moyes’s squad this winter.
Marseille signed the four-capped Brazil international midfielder from Flamengo in the summer of 2021 for around £17 million (Get Football News France).
It seems as though his stay in France could be short-lived though, with the Ligue 1 outfit now trying to move him on.
Marseille are allegedly trying to move him on for around €15 million (£13 million), according to L’Equipe.
That sounds like really good value to me.
Gerson has scored two goals in 10 games for Marseille so far this season. During those outings, he has registered a pass completion rate of 82.4% (Who Scored).
The South American is incredibly strong, has real energy and dynamism and seems to be ideally suited to the robust nature of Premier League football.
I’d be delighted if the Hammers signed Gerson for £13 million in the January transfer window.
And with the midfielder allegedly waiting for West Ham to make a bid for him, this one could get wrapped up really quickly in January.
