If its strictly gaming, you should go for a GPU. And I will go for some 2nd hand gpu like rx 470 or rx570 for example.
100% this.

An RX 470 or 570 will be roughly 60% better than the GTX 1050 and is about as powerful a card as I'd pair with your CPU. You should see a significant increase in performance. On top of that you should be able to find them for a reasonable price. Alternatively you could look for a used GTX 1060 3GB, but missing that GB+ of VRAM (the 470/570 comes with a minimum of 4 GB) could hurt performance nowadays. Going older you could look for a GTX 970 or R9 290 or 390... but older means using a lot more power and running a hotter.

Budget is 100euros, not much so you can only upgrade one thing. And I guess your option is to buy 2nd hand components.
