Gabriel Barbosa is once again on the radar of European clubs. Sky Sports, one of the major players in the UK, reported this Monday that West Ham are “continuing talks” by signing the Flamengo striker, who will be “wowed” by David Moyes’ work. Three other clubs in the Premier League would also be interested in signing Gabi in this window.
according to bayonet!Flamengo maintains its position that no club offer is made to the player. Upon his return from Portugal on December 31, director Bruno Spindel was emphatic in rejecting any contact with Newcastle, from England, for the 9 shirt, whose contract runs until the end of 2024.
According to Sky Sports, Gabigol has a desire to play in the Premier League and has been impressed by watching West Ham matches. The London club has a good campaign under David Moyes, and ranks fifth behind leaders Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal, respectively.
