Chelsea have been linked with a January move for Brazilian goal machine Gabriel Barbosa also known as Gabigol after his impressive loan spell at Brazilian club Flamengo.
Gabigol was offered to Chelsea, they weren’t ones pursuing him- they respectfully declined, the most likely outcome is Flamengo acquires him permanently with Inter getting a significant percentage on his resale

The 23 year old forward scored 34 goals in 41 appearances while on loan at Flamengo and has now returned to parent club Inter Milan.
According to David Amoyal of Gianlucadimarzio.com, Chelsea were offered the chance to sign Gabigol this January but the Blues turned down the chance to sign the 23 year old.
Gabigol flopped in his only season at Serie A with Inter Milan and also failed to impress when he joined Benfica on loan.
Despite his impressive loan spell at Flamengo, the Blues aren’t convinced signing the Brazilian is the right move.
We are really worried about Chelsea transfer this January so far but let’s keep calm and see what will comes up within the few’s weeks left in the transfer window.
