Tottenham entered the race to sign Inter Milan’s £26million attacker Gabriel Barbosa, according to a report.
News outlet Bleacher Report claims Spurs and the Reds are among a number of Premier League teams that have “expressed an interest” in snapping up the 20-year-old this summer.
It is understood that West Ham have been keeping tabs on the in-demand Serie A forward for a long time, but the report claims that Everton, Leicester, Stoke, Southampton and Swansea are also keen.
Bleacher Report adds that Inter Milan would be inclined to letting Barbosa leave the San Siro on a loan deal this summer after they only signed him from Brazilian titans Santos last year in a deal reported by the Mirror to be worth a stunning £26million.
The Mirror has also previously reported that the four-times Brazil international might struggle to obtain a work permit ahead of a switch to England.
Barbosa, nicknamed Gabigol, only featured ten times across all competitions for Inter Milan last season, and that lack of game-time could hinder a potential switch to the Premier League.
