Manchester United are believed to be chasing the signature of one of Brazil's latest stars ahead of next season after he impressed at the 2019 Copa America.
It has been reported that the Red Devils are interested in signing 23-year-old Selecao star Everton Soares.
The winger enjoyed a breakthrough Copa campaign with the host nation, softening the blow of losing Neymar in the build-up to the tournament by winning the Golden Boot.
Everton scored three times in the competition for Tite's side, and assisted another goal, which saw him beat Peru's Paolo Guerrero to the prize.
Three days after the Copa finished, the winger was already back playing for Gremio in Brazil, finding the back of the net for his side in their Copa do Brasil draw with Bahia.
According to Brazilian journalist Farid Germano and as cited by Sport Witness, United scouts have been watching the player, who also has other clubs interested in his services.
With Romelu Lukaku reportedly on his way out of the English club, Everton could be his replacement at Old Trafford, especially as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apparently considers Marcus Rashford to be his out-and-out striker.
Everton has scored 38 goals in 147 matches for Gremio, while he has also found the back of the net three times in 12 games for Brazil.
