According to major international newspapers, Timao has expressed interest in the 32-year-old footballer, who has not had a good time in Arab countries, scoring just three goals in 17 games. Although Bobby's gift is not good, it will not be easy to get rid of his club, where he has a contract until June 2026 and receives a hefty sum of money.

However, this would not be an obstacle for Corinthians, who will try to “break the pig” and take on big personalities. In addition to Firmino, they are also very interested in Flamengo's goalscorer Gabriel Barbosa. Are both players coming? The clock starts ticking.
