Gamba Osaka has acquired Brazilian striker Bare from Ventforet Kofu and defender Sota Nakazawa from Kashiwa Reysol, the J. League first-division club said Wednesday.

The 24-year-old Bare joins Gamba on a full transfer after scoring 14 goals in 30 matches for Kofu last year.

Nakazawa, also 24, joins the 2005 J. League champion on a one-year loan deal, effective Feb. 1.
