Foot OL – Gerson at OL, Textor’s latest madness – Olympique Lyonnais

A former big recruit from OM who failed to break through in Provence, Gerson returned to Brazil where he is doing well with Flamengo. John Textor aims to bring him back to France, to OL.

Owner of theOlympique Lyonnais, but also several clubs including Botafogo in Brazil, John Textor is currently rather focused on France and the change of coach which is taking place between Rhône and Saône. Fabio Grosso will be appointed and this while the American businessman has multiplied the avenues until finding a technician who is unanimous, which is rather the case of the Italian. Obviously, the former OL fullback arrives with his ideas, his staff and will perhaps have his requests in terms of recruitment in January.

But John Textor also has his own wishes and according to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, OL have a certain Gerson in their sights. This is obviously the midfielder who represented a big investment for OM in June 2021, since more than 21 million euros had been dropped to bring him from Flamengo. Despite an encouraging start, the Brazilian had never managed to completely impose himself, and his sidelining with the passage of Igor Tudor had forced him to return to the sender, for a slightly less significant sum.

John Textor veut Gerson

Will Gerson, who had already tried the adventure in Italy, once again consider arriving in Europe at the age of 26? John Textor hopes to convince him to return to France, this time to strengthen the OL midfield. This information in any case had the effect of a bomb in Brazil, knowing that the American is also the owner of Botafogo, a rival of Flamengo in the Brazilian championship. South American followers even suggested that John Textor was also capable of recruiting Gerson with Lyon, and then loaning him to Botafogo, one of the city’s rivals in Rio de Janeiro. A hell of a mic-mac in perspective, even if Lyon supporters can be certain of one thing: if John Textor really wants to bring Gerson to OL, he will do everything to achieve it.
