Fulham fight Hammers for Gabigol

Inter striker Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa could be heading to London, as Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham challenge West Ham United.

The 22-year-old Brazilian cost €29.5m from Santos in 2016, but struggled to make an impact both with the Nerazzurri and on loan at Benfica.

He rediscovered his scoring touch with a year-long loan spell at his old club Santos and Inter are eager to sell him on this summer.

West Ham United have until now been the favourites, but La Gazzetta dello Sport and Panorama.it claim the Premier League outfit need to sell before they can invest such large sums.

Instead, Fulham and their new manager Ranieri have enquired after Gabigol’s status.

It remains to be seen if the forward will be given a work permit.

He scored two goals in four senior caps for Brazil, but all those games were in 2016.
