Brazil star Everton Soares has suggested his playing style could be of interest to Manchester United as he eyes up a European move.

Everton made a name for himself on the big stage on Friday by scoring in Brazil’s 3-0 win over Bolivia in their Copa America opener. He took just four minutes to score his first international goal after replacing David Neres in the second-half.

Now, the Gremio forward has sent United and other Premier League teams a transfer message as he weighs up a potential European move.

“I’m a player that’s always trying to get on top [of the opposition],” he told the Daily Mail.

“Cutting in from the left with dribbles and good finishes – clubs in Europe have this style of play. Maybe I can fit in at Manchester United and others.”

Everton has spent his entire senior career at Gremio, where he has made 145 appearances and scored 37 times while providing 10 assists.

The 23-year-old was also a part of the Gremio team that won the 2017 Copa Libertadores alongside Barcelona star Arthur Melo and Luan.

Now Everton will likely take on a central role in Gremio’s pursuit of the 2019 Copa Libertadores title once Brazil’s have finished their Copa America campaign. So far, he has scored six times in the club’s opening 12 games of the new season.

Premier League champions Manchester City are allegedly keeping tabs on the Brazilian.

Serie A giants AC Milan and Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain have also reportedly expressed an interest in him.

Everton remains under contract, though, at Gremio until June 2022 and has a market value of €20m.
