According to a report from Inside Futbol, Brazilian Serie A side Gremio have already started identifying replacements for star midfielder Everton Soares – potentially highlighting the Toffees’ interest in bringing the player to Goodison Park.
Soares, who has bagged a solid 36 league goals from the left-wing since his debut campaign in 2014 (Transfermarkt), has reportedly been enticing Everton’s interest as they search for a prolific midfielder to add potential goalscoring threat. Indeed, the Brazilian has been linked with a move to the Premier League for quite some time, with English giants Arsenal also in the hunt for his signature last summer (Belfast Telegraph).
Supporters, upon hearing the latest rumours surrounding the South American starlet, have been excited over potentially acquiring him – with one fan even saying the club should ‘swap Bernard’ for him. Compared to his compatriot, Everton has averaged 2.8 shots per game and 3.1 completed dribbles in his most recent campaign – meanwhile, Bernard has only mustered 0.7 and 1.1 in the league, as per WhoScored.com.
As a result, some fans are desperate to see the Toffees make a move for the club’s namesake – find all of their best comments down below.

if there’s interest in Everton Soares hope he’s signed by next week’s January Deadline if there’s any truth to the Brazilian Sources going around

He would be a very interesting signing and probably a success in the near future, but as you I don’t believe any deal is going to happen this window, need to free up many players and wages (Martina, Schneiderlin, Walcott, Sigurđsson, Tosun, Sandro, Bolasie, Niasse).

Richarlison tweeted see you soon to him a few weeks ago.
