West Ham remain in talks with the agents of Inter Milan striker Gabriel Barbosa.
Gabigol has spent this year on-loan in Brazil with Santos, where they have admitted they cannot afford to buy the forward outright.
Instead, Sportmediaset says West Ham are in contact with the player and Inter about a January loan deal.
Gabigol has scored 16 goals in 31 league matches for Santos this season.
His loan agreement with Santos expires at the end of 2018.
