Newly appointed West Ham United manager David Moyes has sanctioned a move for Inter striker Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa with the Premier League club now set to make an offer according to a report from FCInterNews.it.
West Ham are prepared to offer Inter €20 million plus bonuses for the 23-year-old, who spent the entirety of last year out on loan at Flamengo in his native Brazil.
This offer would force Inter to go back to Flamengo and tell them they have received a better offer for the former Santos man.
West Ham are not the only Premier League side to have taken an interest. The report goes on to state that Chelsea have also expressed an interest in him through some intermediaries and could move for him in the event that Olivier Giroud leaves.
Whilst on loan at Flamengo, Gabigol made 58 appearances across all competitions during which he scored a sensational 43 goals and provided 13 assists.
