Newcastle United: Fans divided over transfer swoop for Brazilian hot-shot Gabriel Barbosa - Newcastle United

Gabriel Barbosa has been making a name for himself in the Brazilian Serie A for Flamengo this season, scoring an impeccable 22 goals in 26 games, along with seven assists, with top clubs reportedly enticed by his proficiency in front of goal. 

The 23-year-old’s most recent heroics came in the Copa Libertadores final, where he managed to bag two goals in the dying minutes and claw back a sensational cup win for his side – with thousands of supporters taking to the streets and celebrating in style. 

It’s clear that Barbosa is a player for the future, with his exciting playing style and eye for goal potentially offering an alternative to his countryman Joelinton at Newcastle United.

According to the Newcastle Chronicle, the club are reportedly eyeing the youngster’s progress in South America and could potentially make a swoop, since they were already interested in Barbosa even before his cup final heroics.

However, even though his statistics outline that of a lethal marksman, something Newcastle are severely lacking, supporters appear to be divided over his potential acquisition – here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
