The January transfer market is less than two months from being opened and Arsenal are sure to be heavily involved in the market.
Arsenal target Gabriel Barbosa could be on his way to the Emirates with various reports claiming the attacker is on his way out of Inter Milan.
A whole host of Premier League clubs were interested in ‘Gabigol’ before the 20-year-old forward eventually completed a £26million move from Santos to the San Siro in the summer.
Gabriel has featured just once for the San Siro Giant since the start of this season and it appears that Inter Milan new manager Stefano Pioli is keen on sending the player out on loan.
Arsenal are not the only club in the chase of the player. It is understood that Chelsea have also joined and the January transfer window presents the best time for any club to swoop for the player.
Santos president Modesto Roma even confirmed that he had held discussions with Manchester United, as well as Chelsea, in the summer.
‘There weren’t offers, but we did talk about partnerships. I talked to Manchester United, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid,’ Roma said.
It’s understood the Red Devils were very close to bringing Gabriel to Old Trafford back in mid-August.
