The gunners are interested in Gremio winger Everton Soares who was the top scorer of this year’s Copa America. Arsenal have intensified their interest in Everton Soares after his performances helped Brazil to win the 2019 Copa America and most rumours claim that the gunners want him now as the Zaha deal might not go through because of Crystal Palace’s desire to keep him.
Everton Soares is seen as the ideal winger for the gunners as he is skillful and can score goals which is what Unai Emery wants in his wingers since he can’t continue relying on his strikers to get his side goals. There has been a number of reports from Brazil about Everton Soares and even one claimed that Arsenal had sent a medical team to Brazil to conduct a medical on the player.
Interestingly today, an exclusive report by Calciomercato claims that Gremio has set an asking price of €45million for Everton Soares who has attracted interest from many European clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City. The report claims that the gunners are only willing to offer €35million to Gremio for Everton Soacres and that Arsenal’s new technical director Edu Gaspar will be very important in the negotiations as he even recently worked with the player during the Copa America.
This report comes a day after Everton Soares’ wife released a video on Instagram of his husband learning English which has made the Arsenal fans to start believing that he might join them in this summer transfer window.
