Chelsea have been strongly linked with a summer transfer for Brazilian midfielder Gerson. Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the 23 year old Flamengo midfielder.

The 23-year-old Brazilian midfielder is in demand after winning the Campeonato Brasileiro, Copa Libertadores, Supercopa do Brasil and the Recopa Sudamericana this season.

Gerson has revealed he is not interested in a move away from Flamengo.

“After a year with Flamengo, I can promise that I never spoke with another club. My focus is totally on Flamengo,” he told Globo Esporte.

“I feel at home, I am happy, I am wanted and I am at a club that is on the level of European sides.

“We can’t shut doors, football shows this, but today I am very happy and fulfilled to be in the club of my heart.

“I rediscovered myself here and I want to win yet more trophies in this shirt.”
