Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce is said to be keen to add a new striker in the January transfer window.
Newcastle United are said to be tracking Gabriel Barbosa, as they consider adding more strike power to forward line that couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo.
Newcastle boss Steve Bruce is believed to be eager to sign a new number nine, as he looks to improve his side’s attacking threat.
Joelinton has struggled to score for Newcastle since joining for a club record transfer fee in the January transfer window, while Dwight Gayle and Yoshinori Muto have generally been overlooked.
Barbosa has hit 31 goals in 38 games on a loan spell with Flamengo, with Inter Milan now believed to be keen to cash in on the forward.
Newcastle are yet to firm up their interest, but are said to scouting the 23-year-old as a potential addition.
Barbosa fits into the age range of players Newcastle like to target, and there is no doubting that he could be an exciting addition.
The Brazilian international appears to have a huge amount of potential, even if he hasn't shown it at Inter to date.
It now remains to be seen whether Newcastle will finance a deal for Barbosa, who is expected to cost around £20 million according to the Chronicle.
