Everton Soares joined Gremio’s under-20 side in 2013 from Fortaleza Sport Club.
Everton would be promoted to Gremio’s senior side a year later.
Since then, the 23-year-old has gone on to play 146 games for the Brazilian outfit, in which he has scored 38 and assisted 10.
The 2017/18 season saw Everton net 16 and assist three in 40 games, while he has currently played 12, scored six and assisted one during 2018/19.
Everton is naturally a left winger, but he is also capable of playing on the right wing or through the middle.
Everton’s agent speaks out
The Manchester Evening News recently reported that Everton has been linked with a move to Manchester City this summer.
Gilmar Veloz, Everton’s agent, has since responded to the transfer speculation surrounding his client.
However, Veloz claimed that there is ‘no possibility’ of a sale:
“There is nothing. We have to be very careful, take responsibility with the fans, with me and the boy. We can’t create stories on something that does not exist.
“I’ve been there in January. In March, I went to see a game of the Portuguese Cup and I met Txiki. We talked. At this point, he has more attackers than he could have. There is no possibility of the sale.
“In football, you have to wait. If he sells two, three attackers, there may be [a possibility]. The window in the Premier League runs from 8 July to 8 August.
“In other markets, it extends to until September 3. The point is that, at the moment, there isn’t the slightest possibility.” As quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
