Manchester United are eyeing a move for Gremio forward Everton Soares.

The young Brazilian broke in Gremio’s senior team back in 2014, and has since made over 100 appearances for the club, bagging 23 goals in the process.

He made his international debut for the Samba Boys against the United States back in September, coming on as a second-half substitute for Neymar.

The 22-year-old is a right-footed forward who can play on the left as well as through the middle, and his versatility, along with his impressive performances, have caught the eyes of several European powerhouses.

According to ESPN, English juggernauts Manchester United have registered their interest in the starlet, as they look to bring in more attacking reinforcements in the upcoming transfer windows.

The Red Devils could face some local competition, however, as Soares has also been linked with a switch to the reigning Premier League champions, Manchester City.

Gremio reportedly value their talented asset around £30m. However, the player signed a new deal with the Brazilian outfit back in August, which lasts until 2022, and consists of a release clause just over €60m.

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United seal the deal for the target identified by their South American scouts, and also whether the youngster wishes to join a star-studded attacking lineup at the Theatre of Dreams.
