Aston Villa have joined Newcastle United in the race to sign Flamengo striker Gabriel Barbosa.

That’s according to reports from 90min earlier in the week which have had a number of Villa fans talking on social media.

How many more signings should Gerrard make after signing Coutinho?









Villa have already brought one Brazilian to the club this month in Philippe Coutinho to join compatriot Douglas Luiz in the Midlands, with Steven Gerrard and Johan Lange possibly after another in Barbosa.

According to 90min, Newcastle have held preliminary talks over a move for the 25-year-old, who is keen on making the switch to St James’ Park.

It is believed that a move would cost in the region of £30m, with West Ham also advanced in talks. The report adds that Villa, Chelsea and Wolves have also made contact regarding a switch for the Brazil international.

“Barbosa. He’s a real talent and ready made nuisance for defences. But agree we have Watkins, we still haven’t seen the best of Watkins because he needs consistent seasons and quality around him. Get that and we have a superb player already on our books. Thanks but a pass.”

“Only way we sign any other striker is if Ollie or Ings leave and I can’t see that happening, we only play one striker so to have one playing and 2 on the bench I can’t see it”
