Gabriel Barbosa, known in the football world as Gabigol, has been a prominent figure in Flamengo in recent years, contributing with his scoring ability to the conquest of two Copa Libertadores in the last four years. At 27 years old, the Brazilian striker could be ready for a new adventure in European football, having had previous experiences with Inter Milan in Italy and Benfica in Portugal.
The journalist specializing in the transfer market, Ekrem Konur, recently reported on his social networks that Gabigol is the object of interest from several European teams due to his outstanding performance on the field and his ability to score goals. Although he did not reveal the names of the interested clubs, he noted that the Brazilian striker could have the opportunity to return to European football in January.

A few weeks ago, Konur had also reported that both Fulham and Crystal Palace were interested in signing Gabigol. The striker’s situation at Flamengo could be coming to an end, especially after the team’s elimination from the Copa Libertadores, raising the possibility of him accepting a tempting offer from European football.
Gabigol has stood out for his ability to score goals and his presence in the opponent’s area, qualities that have made him an attractive target for several European teams. His successful track record at Flamengo, including winning major titles, has established him as one of the most prominent forwards in South America.
The fight to acquire the services of Gabigol promises to be an interesting story in the next January transfer market. European clubs pursuing him will surely make attractive offers to ensure the Brazilian striker is part of their ranks in the second half of the season.
