Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea are all keeping tabs on Brazilian teenager Gabriel Barbosa with a view to a summer transfer swoop, according to reports.

The highly-rated Santos forward is part of the Brazil squad for this summer’s Copa America and scored on his senior international debut last week.

Jose Mourinho is believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings after his appointment as Manchester United’s new manager last week.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are also thought to be keen to bolster their attacking options as Arsene Wenger looks to build a team capable of winning the title next season.

Now, The Sun is reporting that both Arsenal and United, along with Chelsea, are pondering moves for the 19-year-old forward.
