Fabrizio Romano of Calcio Mercato has claimed that AC Milan are not in for Everton Soares, although Arsenal are.
I have only seen Everton Soares playing in the Copa America. When I first shared the news last month, had no idea who he was. He would represent better VFM than Wilfried Zaha. Seems like we can get him for around £30m. Would be a masterpiece by Edu if we can get it done.

The Brazilian winger was reported by Globo Esporte (via the Daily Mail) some days ago now to be on the Gunners’ radar, with technical director Edu understood to be keen. Alongside Peru’s Paulo Guerrero, Everton top-scored at the Copa America with three goals and he opened the scoring in the final of the tournament as his country went on to win it on home soil.
According to the report from Calcio Mercato, Milan had been looking at the player for a long time, although seeing as Leonardo has left the club and they won’t be competing in European competition next season, everything has changed for the potential move of Everton to the San Siro.
It remains to be seen whether or not Arsenal will be able to capitalise on this one, but with Fabrizio Romano claiming that the Gunners are interested after the young Brazilian’s Copa America success, these fans are getting excited.

I’ve been keeping an eye on him since he was 19, I’m just glad he’s getting the sort of attention that he’s earned over the past few years
