West Ham United: Fans excited by Gabriel Barbosa transfer update -West Ham Transfer Rumours

Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have been left buzzing following a Sky Sports update on their striker search involving Flamengo forward Gabriel Barbosa.

Irons boss David Moyes has been actively searching for a new striker since club record signing Sebastien Haller left the London Stadium last January.

It is seen as one of the club’s major transfer priorities this window alongside the search for defensive reinforcements and, potentially, the signing of attacking midfielder Jesse Lingard (The Evening Standard).

One player heavily linked with a move to the English capital over these last few days has been Brazil international striker Barbosa as Sky Sports share an update on the Hammers’ forward hunt.

According to their information, the club have now held talks over signing the 25-year-old this month as they identify ‘Gabigol’ as a transfer target.

It is also believed Barbosa is keen on a move to England and the Premier League, watching every West Ham game in particular whilst being impressed with the job manager Moyes is doing at the club.

Irons fans buzz…

Flocking to this update from a reliable source, many Irons fans have been left buzzing and it isn’t hard to see why given his impressive goal return over 2021.

Scoring a head-turning 29 goals over the last calendar year (Transfermarkt), the 17-cap star has certainly proved he can find the back of the net on more than one occasion.

Here’s how West Ham fans reacted as their club hold talks over his signing.
