Inter Milan striker ​Gabigol ready to score in England, Italy, Germany or Spain

Brazil striker Gabigol is ready to take his talents to a top European league.

The Inter Milan reject believes that he has learned from that unsuccessful spell, and will be a much better player if he gets another chance in Europe.

The attacker, whose real name is Gabriel Barbosa, has 29 goals for Flamengo this season.

He is on loan with the Brazilian club, and is set for a permanent departure from Inter in January or the summer.

Gabigol is preparing for the Copa Libertadores final against River Plate.

"I learned a lot during my time at Inter, even though I had limited opportunities to show my capabilities,' the Brazilian striker, 23, told AS.

"I arrived highly motivated and wanted to show my abilities. I worked hard, I tried to learn the philosophy of every coach in a new environment.

"Perhaps, with some consistency, my adventure at Inter would have been a completely different story.

"I always respected the coach's decisions, even though I felt like I should play more often."
