Earlier today, we carried a report from UOL, who explained that Gremio are still waiting for an official bid for Everton Cebolinha.
Arsenal are one of the clubs interested in the Brazil international and it was explained that Edu Gaspar’s appointment as the Gunners’ technical director makes it more likely for the Emirates club to acquire his services.
Apart from the Europa League runners-up, AC Milan are also interested in the 23-year-old.
Calciomercato.it claims signing him has become more complicated for the Serie A side and Unai Emery’s side are on ‘pole’ to acquire the forward’s signature.
Brazil won the Copa America 2019 and Everton was one of the standout players of the tournament. Following his impressive display, Gremio has increased his asking price to €45m, while Arsenal have come up to offer around €35m.
The report claims there is a belief the deal can be concluded for €40m and they once again explain Edu’s presence is vital for negotiations between the parties.
Calciomercato.it states Arsenal’s delegation has already flown to Brazil and the coming days are decisive in deciding Everton’s future.
