Barbosa (right) shone for Brazil at the Olympics this past summer
Arsenal could swoop for Inter Milan striker Gabriel Barbosa after he failed to make his mark at the San Siro, according to Calcionews24.
The striker, commonly known as ‘Gabigol’ moved to Italy from Santos for £26million after impressing for Brazil at the Olympics this summer.
But he has played just 16 minutes of football since as Inter’s woes in Serie A have built up.
And now reports in Italy are suggesting that Inter could offload Gabigol, 20, already – attracting Premier League interest.
Arsenal are one of the teams believed to be interested in a move for him, while Chelsea and Barcelona are said to be considering swooping.
United ‘poised to swoop for Ozil’
Ozil has reportedly become a shock target for Manchester United
Manchester United are ready to make a move for Arsenal star Mesut Ozil .
The German has been in fine form this season but has yet to agree a new deal with the Gunners.
His current contract expires in 2018 and he is holding out for a huge increase on his £140,000-a-week deal.
And according to The Sun , United are poised to swoop.
Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho called him "the best No.10 in the world" when the pair worked together at Real Madrid.
And the Portuguese would surely love to pair him with Paul Pogba in midfield.
Giroud being considered by Italian duo
Giroud has only played 90 minutes once for Arsenal this season
AC Milan and Napoli are monitoring Olivier Giroud ‘s situation at Arsenal , writes Mirror Football’s Adrian Kajumba.

Arsenal have been hit with an injury blow, with the news that Hector Bellerin is set to miss the remainder of the club’s November program, writes Mirror Football’s Alex Richards.
Spanish starlet Bellerin, 21, has been in outstanding form for the Gunners during the early part of the season.
But he was forced to withdraw from the Spain Under-21 squad earlier this week, after picking up an injury in training.
Concerns over Bellerin’s fitness were raised last week when he was left out of the Champions League squad to face Ludogorets.
But he returned to the Gunners line-up at the weekend, playing the full 90 minutes of the 1-1 draw with north London rivals Tottenham.
Wenger waiting on ‘suicidal’ Sanchez decision
Sanchez got injured during Chile training earlier this week
Arsene Wenger has warned Chile they are in danger of making a “suicidal decision” which could rule Alexis Sanchez out for THREE MONTHS, writes Mirror Football’s John Cross.
Chile boss Juan Antonio Pizzi is ready to risk the striker in next week’s clash with Uruguay, despite Arsenal chief Wenger revealing he has been told his star striker suffered a hamstring injury rather than a calf problem.
Arsenal boss Wenger is now ready to go to war with the Chilean FA to stop them from taking any chances on Sanchez by playing him and making the injury worse.
Sanchez is out of Chile’s Thursday game with Colombia but rather than send him home they have kept him in Santiago for treatment in the hope he may be fit to face Uruguay on Tuesday.
Wenger, in an interview with beIN Sports, said: “I got a text last night (to say) that he has a hamstring injury. The team from Chile has travelled without him and they kept him to try and get him fit to play Uruguay for the second game on Tuesday night.
“We have to get access for our medical staff to the MRI scan to see what grade it is, how bad it is and make absolutely sure they don’t make any suicidal decision that could harm his future for two or three months.
“That is absolutely important. It’s a grey area between the national team and the club team and of course they look at their own results which I can understand but we have to preserve the health of Alexis Sanchez.
“He always wants to play and that’s where it is a more sensitive case because he’s always ready to play even when injured.”
