Arsenal are reportedly ready to launch an official bid for Everton Soares, according to reports from Brazil.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with Arsenal this summer as they look in need of pace.
Although the rumors have been widely reported, Arsenal have reportedly denied any interest in the player but their denials have fallen on deaf ears as the media continues to spread the word.
With the club about to spend £72m on a right winger in Nicolas Pepe, it leaves one to wonder how they could afford a €40m bid for a left winger in Soares but that’s what the media in Brazil report Gremio expect.
Lance in Brazil write,
“Now, the latest information provided by the portal UOL Esporte is that Arsenal intends to offer Gremio a proposal that would be at the level expected by the gaucho club: 40 million euros ($ 168.7 million).
“Besides the English, who also intends to make an investment with this amount is Napoli, from Italy. However, the Old South Boot club is now more of a “second choice” if the deal with the London team is unsuccessful.”
They also report Gremio’s vice president, DudaKroeff saying, “Every day we have some sign that some proposal will come.
“But so far we have none. The director doesn’t have much work with him (Everton). He is a player and an excellent boy. A wonderful person. And the manager has been behaving very well.
“He is calm. Like every player, he has a dream of playing in Europe, but he is always willing and very fond of wearing the Grêmio shirt. In no hurry to leave.”
Is Arsenal really trying to sign Soares or are the Media just operating on hearsay?
Thankfully, the transfer deadline is just some days away and we would find out what the real deal is.
