Barcelona have confirmed that Gabri is hoping to move to the English Premiership soon. West Ham are thought to be club closest to a deal.
Club spokesman Toni Ruiz said today, “The player has informed us of his desire to move to the Premiership in order to have more playing time.”
The Catalan press have linked Gabri with West Ham but Barcelona have refused to confirm whether that was the player’s preferred option. The club have said however that they will not stand in his way if he wants to move. Gabri’s current contract is due to expire in the summer and the club have hinted that they would be willing to let him go on a free transfer.
