Chelsea FC transfer report: Blues face battle with Inter Milan for the ‘new Neymar’

New Inter Milan manager Frank de Boer has set his sights firmly on Chelsea target Gabriel Barbosa.

The man dubbed ‘Gabigol’ after hitting 21 goals for Santos last term is said to be a key target for Antonio Conte’s Chelsea this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Juventus are also big admirers of the 19-year-old hotshot, although he insists he is currently fully focused on the Olympics and not his next move.

But now, according to Tuttosport, Inter Milan have joined the race to sign him following the appointment of De Boer as boss.

The Dutchman wants to add to his current forward line and is said to be a big fan of the teenage starlet, who has been hailed as the ‘new Neymar’.

It has been suggested that the San Siro club, who finished fourth in Serie A last term, are currently drawing up an offer for Santos, and hope to beat the other European heavyweights to his signature before the window closes.
