Premier League giants consider move for next “Neymar”

Santos’ Gabriel Barbosa is reportedly being targeted by Premier League sides Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United who appear to have been impressed by the 18 year old.
The Brazilian striker has been compared to former Santos superstar Neymar who left Santos for Barcelona last year in a deal which had an option allowing the Catalan giants to have first choice option for him, reports Express. A clause like that would mean that Barcelona would have the first option to sign Barbosa if any club offered him a contract.
Barbosa signed a professional contract with Santos in 2012 which included a buyout clause of £40 million. Santos, however, are said to be open for offers as low as £24m due to the fact that his contract is expiring in 18 months time, a demand that the three of the English giants are more than capable of meeting.
He is a natural No. 10 who likes to play behind the striker and has made 37 appearances for the first team, scoring 9 goals.
