The Brazilian forward has been on loan at Santos since last season.
Since January, Barbosa has seemed to find his previous form, scoring 25 goals in 49 appearances for the club Inter signed him away from.
Prior to being on loan with Santos, Inter sent Barbosa to Portugal and Benfica, but he managed just 156 minutes of playing time in the first half of the season with the Portuguese outfit.
West Ham had Inter midfielder Joao Mario on loan for the latter half of last season but failed to connect on an offer to make the loan permanent. Since then, other teams have enquired about Mario, but no offers came to fruition.
Now, Mario has started to find a way back into Luciano Spalletti’s good graces and it is paying dividends. Against Genoa last week, Mario had a goal and three assists in the Nerazzurri’s 5-0 win at the Meazza.
In terms of Barbosa to West Ham, remember the transfer window is a ways away, so anything can happen, including a return to Inter for Gabigol or a stay with Santos.
