Report: Atleti in for Gabigol

Atletico Madrid are reportedly interested in signing Inter forward Gabriel Barbosa.

According to Globoesporte, Atleti are ‘on the trail’ for Gabigol, who has spent the past year on loan at Santos but is due to return to Inter on December 31.

The publication explains the Brazilian side are keen to keep the 22-year-old beyond his loan spell but will find it ‘extremely difficult’ to do so for financial reasons.

Consequently, Los Colchoneros would be ‘monitoring the situation’, given their lack of goals this season.

The report is corroborated by those in the Spanish Press, which claim Atleti want to give Diego Simeone the ‘gift’ of an attacker in January.

Gabigol has found his shooting boots back at Santos, scoring 15 goals in 29 League appearances this calendar year.
