After arriving in Rome on September 29, 2020, Gabriel Pereira arrived at the Paideia Clinic at 8:00 am on September 30, 2020, to carry out his medicals (which came to a conclusion at 12:00 pm) ahead of his transfer to Lazio.

The 18-year-old Brazilian goalkeeper will arrive from French Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, who he has only been with since January 2020 (since transferring from Campeonato Brasileiro Série A side Grêmio).

While he has made appearances on an international level with the Brazil U16 and U17 teams, it is important to note that he is also an Italian citizen.
