Cape Town - Santos starlet Gabriel Barbosa has indicated that he could soon be set to move abroad amid reported interest from Europe's top clubs.

The 19-year-old forward has been linked with Barcelona, Juventus and Chelsea following his impressive performances for the Peixe over the past 18 months.

Barbosa scored in a 3-1 win over Ponte Preta on Saturday to take his tally for the season to five goals in 10 outings, and his post-match comments have put potential suitors on red alert.

"I played as if it was my last game here. Soon you will know something," the Brazil international told reporters afterwards.

Barbosa went on to deny claims from the Brazilian club that they had recently secured his future until 2021, and revealed he has offers on the table but will not rush into making a decision.

"No, there is still no agreement. The president ended up talking, but there is nothing confirmed," the teenager told Globe Esporte.

"We are just talking. My parents and my representatives are talking. They have some things to discuss. I have proposals, too, but there's nothing confirmed yet.

"I need to talk with my parents and my representatives. We are talking and we are going to resolve it slowly."
