Newcastle United and West Ham United are set to be offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker Gabriel Barbosa.

That’s according to a recent report from GiveMeSport, who claims the South American forward is likely to make a return to European football following the last two years playing back in his native Brazil.

Although things didn’t quite work out for the enigmatic striker at both Inter Milan and Benfica, his recent form at Flamengo has seen him emerge as a leading candidate to join a Premier League team this summer.
