Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted to reports that the club are interested in signing Gerson from Flamengo.
Globo Esporte claims that the club have made an enquiry for the midfielder as they attempt to bring in reinforcements at the turn of the year.
The big fat Tottenham quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Spurs?
The Brazilian club are said to want €30m (£25.7m) to allow the star to leave.
And a section of fans simply think that the club are targeting players with similar names this month!
We’re really signing the Ge*sons.

Gedson-Gerson Fernandes-Fernandes (Bruno)…
Are we just being linked with players with similar names?

The 22-year-old has been capped 10 times by Brazil’s U20 team and was only signed by the club from Roma in the summer.
He has made a total of 36 appearances for the club but some supporters simply don’t know who he is.
Indeed, many have harkened back to a meme that was born when Danny Rose claimed he didn’t want the club signing players that he had “to Google”.
I’m not gonna pretend I know anything about this guy. https://t.co/YJ8GDKnzB7

It remains to be seen if Jose Mourinho will get his required reinforcements this month.
Meanwhile, Spurs fans have hammered one man for his display against Liverpool.
