West Ham United are keeping tabs on Inter Milan star Gabriel Barbosa, who will be available in the January transfer window.
Barbosa is currently only loan with Brazilian side Santos but will return to the San Siro when that deal expires in the new year, and Inter will be looking to move him on again.
The 22-year-old’s first-team prospects have not improved at Inter, who have plenty of strength in depth in the attacking areas, and another move away looks to be the best option.
The player will not be short of options, including the Premier League, where the Hammers could suit.
The player’s agent is Kia Joorabchian, who has already brokered deals that have seen Joao Mario and Felipe Anderson sign for West Ham, and Barbosa could follow in their footsteps.
Elsewhere, reports are rife that Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt have made Inter an early offer and talks over a potential move are currently in the early stages.
