De Boer: 'Gabigol arrogant'

Former Inter Coach Frank de Boer bitterly criticised Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa, accusing him of having a poor work ethic and “thinking himself a superstar.”

The striker was signed at the age of 20 from Santos and failed to make any impact, scoring one goal and having no Serie A starts.

He was loaned out to Benfica, where the situation barely improved, before being returned to Santos on loan with option to buy.

“Gabigol thought he was still in Brazil and would walk rather than run,” De Boer told ESPN.

Torino turn to Bremer

Torino have seemingly given up on Lucas Verissimo and are turning their focus towards Atletico Mineiro defender Bremer.

According to multiple sources, Toro have no intention of meeting the Santos asking price of €10m for Verissimo.

Instead, they are looking at another tall and powerful Brazilian centre-back, 21-year-old Bremer of Atletico Mineiro.

He missed training today, raising some eyebrows, but only recently signed a new contract to December 2022.

This season, Bremer has played 13 competitive games for his club, scoring one goal.

Torino told Verissimo price

Santos are ready to sell defender Lucas Verissimo to Torino for €10m, but only at certain conditions, according to Brazilian media.

The centre-back turned 23 yesterday and has also been linked with Lazio, Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique Marseille.

According to Gazeta Esportiva and Lancenet, Santos have said they are prepared to accept the €10m proposal from Torino.

However, Santos own only 80 per cent of the player’s rights, so they want the €10m to go to them and not be split with Verissimo’s agent.
