Spurs drop out of race for Arsenal, Chelsea target Gerson

Tottenham have gone cold on their bid for Flamengo midfielder Gerson.

Tottenham have ended their pursuit of Gerson, reports Esportes.

Jose Mourinho was keen on bringing the playmaker to north London after earning rave reviews in the Copa Libertadores.

But the Brazilian outfit have reportedly demanded £43m for the 23-year-old - some distance apart from Spurs' offer of £16m - leaving Chelsea as the only interested party in signing Gerson now.

In Italy, Arsenal have also been linked with the former Roma midfielder.
