Gabriel Barbosa aka “Gabigol” was a top prospect in South America a few years ago, getting a move to Inter Milan which ended up not working out for anyone.
They’ve moved on and signed more top forwards, while Gabigol returned to Flamengo in his native Brazil, rebuilding his career with another great season, including two goals in the Copa Libertadores final.
He’s now apparently on Chelsea’s radar, with a January move possible. If you want to see a little more of why people are getting excited with his recovery in the last year, you can watch the following clip of his performances in Brazil this season.
You can see the clip below, as posted by everyone’s favourite clinger-on Frank Khalid:
