​Chelsea overtake BVB, Spurs in race for Flamengo midfielder Gerson

Chelsea are racing ahead in the race to sign Flamengo midfielder Gerson.

The club are working hard to secure new players so they can mount a proper title challenge under Frank Lampard next season.

And their next target appears to be Gerson from Brazil.

Fox Sports claims that the 23-year-old is wanted by the Stamford Bridge club.

Flamengo are seeking £30 million for the talent who arrived from Roma in July for £10.5 million.

The club do not want to lose Gerson, but would sell him if they could make such a profit in a short space of time.

The central midfielder would bolster Lampard's options in the middle of the park.
