It has been reported that Barcelona risk missing out on Fluminense midfielder Gerson.
The Spanish giants have been in talks with Flu and Gerson’s family since January about a move to Europe in 2016.
However, Globoesporte says Roma have come forward with a bid of €14.7 million plus bonuses.
Barca paid €3.2 million to Flu for first option on Gerson, but they must match Roma’s bid to stay in control of the situation.
Flu are ready to sell, having just shelled out for former Barca star Ronaldinho.
