Gabigol was Flamengo’s star in the 2019 Copa Libertadores final as his two late goals helped his side beat River Plate.
The Inter Milan owned player will go to the Club World Cup with the Brazilian side and FcInterNews claims the 23-year-old will only make a final decision on his future after the tournament in Qatar.
Crystal Palace and West Ham United are the two English club who have ‘moved’ for the forward, according to the report.
The headline on the Italian website states ‘Crystal Palace concrete’ and within the report, they state the Eagles are ‘ready to put’ a €23m offer on the table for the Brazilian.
Roy Hodgson’s side have an advantage over the Hammers as West Ham are ‘further behind’ in the race for Gabigol due to their managerial situation. The report states Manuel Pellegrini is at risk of being sacked at the London Stadium, which would put doubt on their efforts. Schalke are also studying the situation.
Flamengo are keen on signing Gabigol and have offered him a five-year deal worth €5m net per season. However, FcInterNews states they are ‘struggling’ with their plans as the player is more intrigued by the possibility of returning to Europe.
Inter, who are waiting for offers, are ready to cash in from his sale in January. Gabigol’s price tag could further increase if he manages to take centre stage and help Flamengo win the Club World Cup.
