Fenerbahce are making a hard push to sign Gabriel Barbosa from Inter Milan, amid reports linking the striker with a move to Crystal Palace.
The Brazilian forward, who is commonly known as Gabigol, has reportedly been eyed by a plethora of clubs from across Europe as his future at San Siro continues to come into question.
Palace, alongside plenty of other Premier League sides, have been touted as a potential destination for the youngster, who looks all but set to seek pastures new at the turn of the year.
According to a report from Calciomercato, it is Turkish Super Lig club Fenerbahce who now lead the race to land Gabigol ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
It’s claimed that they are prepared to present a ‘concrete offer’ to officials from Inter in January as they look to strengthen their attacking options.
Competition is increasing in the race for Gabigol’s signature and it seems, if the Eagles are serious about their apparent pursuit of the 22-year-old, they will need to move quickly as Fenerbahce close in.
