Gabriel Barbosa

Premier League outfit Chelsea have made Inter Milan loanee Gabigol ‘Gabriel Barbosa’ their number one striker target in the current January winter window after they were rebuffed in a quest to sign other targets.

Chelsea wanted to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele but the French club has released a statement stating that the player is not for sale, while another striker target Timo Werner of German Bundesliga league leaders RB Leipzig has made the decision to stay where he is until the summer.

Frank Lampard wants to sign a striker to provide good competition for first-choice striker Tammy Abraham who is the leading goalscorer for the Blues.

The inability to sign Timo Werner and Moussa Dembele has left Lampard and Chelsea with Gabriel Barbosa who is on loan at Brazilian Serie A team Flamengo from Italian giants Inter Milan.

He has scored 25 goals in 29 league games for Flamengo and was instrumental to their title win in the COPA Libertadores after netting twice to overturn a 1-0 final deficit against former Champions River Plate of Argentina.

With the influence of Gabigol, Flamengo beat River Plate 2-1.

Young CSKA Moscow FC of Russia player Fyodor Chalov is also a potential striker signing for Chelsea.
