The father of Fluminese striker Gerson is in Italy to meet with Juventus and Inter Milan.

Interest in the Brazilian U-20 starlet has been ongoing, with Juve reported to have had a bid rejected for the 17 year old last summer. Last time round, Calciomercato suggested the Bianconeri had made a offer to sign the player on loan with an option to buy for €9m but the proposal was rejected.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the players father met with Juventus today while a meeting with Inter Milan is scheduled for tomorrow with a view to gauging interest in the Sub20 star.

Gazzetta journalist Mirko Graziano goes one step further by suggesting Juve have ‘taken’ the player, indicating a deal might have already been agreed.
