West Ham United are thought to be keen on bolstering their firepower when the January transfer window opens next month.
The Hammers already have a number of options available, however, it seems that Manuel Pellegrini is keen to bring in a new face.
Gabriel Barbosa is heavily linked with a move to the London Stadium, however, reports in Italy are starting to add some concerns to a potential deal.
It is claimed that the Serie A outfit want €20million for ‘Gabigol’, however, the Hammers are understood to think that the price is too high.
Barbosa has been heavily linked with West Ham and the rumours about a possible switch do not appear to have shown any signings of slowing down.
However, with the latest claims that the price could be too much for the Hammers to consider, a move may now be in doubt.
Considering the Irons spent a huge amount of money in the summer, and already have a number of attacking options available already, it would not be too surprising to see them turn their attention elsewhere if the price cannot be negotiated.
West Ham fans – thoughts?
