It is rumoured Inter want £20m for Barbosa, and Newcastle are attempting to use South America more for players and getting this talented 23-year-old in would be seen as a major coup by Newcastle.
Would Gabriel Barbosa be a good signing?
Yes, he looks to be a lethal goalscorer
No, he is not proven in Europe
Mike Ashley has also made funds available for January with attacking players thought to be the focus for Steve Bruce – so it would be interesting to see if Newcastle make a move for the man known as “Gabigol.”
