Hammers Barbosa interest is real

West Ham are definitely keen in striker Gabriel Barbosa currently on loan  to Flamengo from Inter Milan.

West Ham have learned that the club are hunting high and low for a proven goal scorer in the January window and have CandH has learned the interest in ‘Gabigol’ is real.

Although the winter window has always been a poor time to get top quality strikers,  there has been a lot of discussion about ‘Gabigol’ who will be offered terms of £80,000 in a bid to bring him to the club.

The striker has had an amazing goals record since joining Flamengo on loan from Inter scoring 43 goals in 58 games for the club.

The 23 year old Brazilian contract expires on on the 31st December which would be perfect timing for the Irons to pick him up but the player has to decide whether he wants to remain on an offered deal in Brazil or chance his arm in the Primier League.

  1. Sure that he has already said he doesn’t want to sign for us, would rather sign for Liverpool.

    • Most players would rather play for Liverpool, he probably won’t have that choice and money always talks

    • He would be sat on the bench every week Ian or play in the reserves like last night in their Caraboa cup fiasco at Villa.

  2. No Chance of this happening as stated he wants a bigger club than us !!!!!!

  3. £80000 a week for an unproven striker in this league. He hardly tore trees up at Inter either. Another expensive mistake?

  4. There must be a spare athletics stadium in Rio.

    Let’s just move there……….

    • He’s just 23 years old and does seem to find the net.
      Also, he does seem to have a variety of West Ham-type skills
      His current loan deal end 31-Dec.
      But why do Inter not seem to like him?

    • Thing with liverpool and all these big clubs is they hoard players by taking them off the market when bought and they languish in the reserves or warm the bench every week.Can you see him getting in b4 Salah,mane and firmino.i doubt it.Has happened so many times and they are left disillusioned wishing they had never joined

  5. It is Christmas, seems like Bob Hope, a white christmas and flying pigs in blankets are in abundance with the likelihood of this having any ring of truth Josh 😉

  6. Foreign manager, foreign recruitment director, equals more over-rated, over-priced, mostly second rate foreign players. Please, can we bring in a British manager who might start looking at British players playing currently in our own leagues??!?

  7. Well said, and totally agree
