Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Arsenal are interested in signing Inter Milan striker Gabriel Barbosa, according to reports.
The Brazil U23 international joined Inter in the summer transfer window but has struggled to adapt to life in Italy. It appears he is now seeking a move away and the Emirates is being touted as a potential destination.
Calcionews24 via The Mirror claims Arsenal could make a move for the Brazilian.
The report claims Chelsea and Barcelona are also interested in the striker and are keeping an eye on his situation.
However, one shouldn’t take this report too serious as it is very unlikely that Inter would want to sell the striker considering his age, talent and the fact that he hasn’t spent up to six months with them.
Gabigol was one of Brazil’s best talents prior to his move to Europe and still has the potential to become a great player, so I doubt if Inter has given up on him so soon.
I believe this is just a figment of the media imagination and most likely Arsenal’s name is being mentioned due to our summer interest in the striker.
We were rumored to have watched the player in the summer before he joined Inter Milan and I wouldn’t be surprise if this is a rehashed report.
Gabigol is a talented player but I doubt if he will be leaving Inter anytime soon, so Gooners shouldn’t get their hopes too high.
