On Wednesday, we covered a report from Brazil which said Wolves have made an offer for Grêmio winger Pepê.
It was claimed the Molineux club are willing to spend €15m on the signing, and add that talks should continue in the coming days. Grêmio aren’t keen on letting the winger leave, as they see him as the heir to Everton Cebolinha, who was sold to Benfica earlier this summer.
Now there’s claims of interest from Everton and West Ham.
Calciomercato have an exclusive report which states the player’s agent recently travelled to England, where he ‘received a proposal’ from Wolves. Then it’s claimed that ‘in recent hours’ both Everton and West Ham have initiated contact over the 23-year-old.
Both clubs have ‘asked’ about signing the player, and it’s reported Grêmio are looking for €20-25m. Even at such a financial level, they wouldn’t be keen to let him go immediately, with the suggestion he could stay on loan in Brazil until the end of the year, presumably then physically moving in the winter transfer window.
Grêmio’s season runs until February 2021, so that kind of deal would see them keep the player for the majority of the campaign, although they’d lose him for the final matches.
