Gabriel “Gabigol” Barbosa wants to play with Roberto Firmino and according to the player, “everyone wants to play for Liverpool.”

Barbosa and his Flamengo teammates are preparing for the Club World Cup, where they could face Liverpool.

They recently won the Copa Libertadores and were crowned South American Champions.

Barbosa is on loan at Flamengo from Inter Milan, where he endured a torrid time.

However, the 23-year-old Brazilian has his eye on a return to Europe and would love to play alongside his hero Firmino.

According to the Sun, the idea of playing on the same international and domestic side has crossed his mind.

He said:

“Firmino is great, I really admire him.”

” He is an inspiration that I look up to.”

“It would be a pleasure to play with him.”

“Maybe we could team up for Brazil in the future and Liverpool is a team that everyone wants to play for.”

“I like the Premier League very much.”

“It really is a place I would like to play.

Breaking into Liverpool’s current squad would be a daunting task for anyone nevermind a youngster like Barbosa.

But Jurgen Klopp if you are listening he’s interested, it might be worth taking a look close up at the Club World Cup.
