Gerson heading to Empoli

Roma have reportedly agreed to loan midfielder Gerson to newly-promoted Empoli, but are waiting for the Brazilian’s all-clear.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the two clubs have worked out the deal that they hope will give him more Serie A playing time.

Gerson is only 21 years old, but cost €16.6m to sign from Fluminense in the summer of 2016.

He has made only 42 competitive appearances for the club over two seasons, contributing two goals and an assist.

The move will be finalised once Gerson agrees to the switch.
