Barcelona could miss out on Gerson as the Italian Press are reporting that Roma have made an €18m bid for the midfielder.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the offer is set to be accepted by Fluminense, therefore rendering the Catalans’ first option on the player redundant.
Barca acquired the clause for €3.6m, claims Globoesporte, but the only way they can prevent the 18-year-old from heading to the Olimpico is by matching the Giallorossi’s bid.
Mundo Deportivo believes the treble winners have 48 hours to come up with an equal offer.
Gerson has seen his place in the Brasileirao side come under threat following the recent arrival of former Blaugrana favourite Ronaldinho.
