Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Gabriel Barbosa reports

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Sunday People (12/1; page 51) suggesting that Spurs want Gabriel Barbosa.

Jose Mourinho is set to be without Harry Kane for the majority of the remaining months of the season. The Sunday People reports that he has undergone surgery and is set to be out until April.
