Inter Milan striker Gabriel Barbosa, also known as ‘Gabigol’, looks set for a summer move with one of three clubs ready to seal his signature, according to reports.

The 20-year-old striker joined the Serie A side from Santos last summer for a massive €29.5m, but failed to make a league start in the club’s domestic campaign.

A total of 10 appearances during the season has seen the Italian side look to loan him out for playing time and experience.

Plus, it is thought that the Brazilian’s relationship with the club took a turn for the worse after he left the substitutes bench during the 3-1 win over Lazio and after his agent, Wagner Riberio complained about his role at the club.

And, it is now being reported by Sky Italia that one of three clubs are ready to sign him with Portuguese duo Sporting and Benfica joining La Liga side Malaga with interest.

The Brazilian was close to a move to Las Palmas earlier this summer but it collapsed after failure to agree terms.

Whilst problems at Inter continue, they are still unsure about his future, preferring to send him out on loan as some club coaches still believe he will find his form and play a part at the Milan club.
