Here are the words in regards with the actual interest of Juventus for Gerson coming from the transfer market expert Gianluca di Marzio:
“An important season passes to the archives, Juventus immediately put to work building the pink for the next season. Allegri, lost Tevez and Pirlo, can already count on heavy reinforcements like Dybala, Khedira, Mandzukic and Neto. Players functional and ready to go on the chessboard of the Juventus coach . It does not stop there though. Juventus want to give themselves a real whim of the market. Spotlight then on Gerson, Fluminense talent.
The Barcelona is monitoring him for some time, and had already closed for purchase option on the player. The suspension of the market, however, complicates everything, and then here is the inclusion of Juventus, who now seems to get serious about the Brazilian.
So the first offer made to Fluminense: 17 + 3 million bonus on future resale. Juve tries to close immediately, to anticipate Barcelona. If the Fluminense will accept the offer, the player could already be in Italy next week.
Difficult negotiation, but Juve tries to close it. Gerson the dream, but that could soon become reality.”
