Napoli halt negotiations with Gremio for Everton Soares

Napoli have paused negotiations with Gremio for winger Everton Soares, Globo Esporte reports.

The Italian media believed a deal was close for Napoli to sign the 24-year-old for for €25-30m.

However, the information from Brazil is different, with Globo stating that the Italians have taken a step back.

Talks did take place between Napoli and Everton, who received and analysed the Partenopei’s salary proposal.

However, talks stopped there as Napoli considered other options to strengthen their forward line.

Napoli bide their time

The Serie A club still have an interest in Everton, but no official offer was ever made to Gremio.

With the Italian transfer window not due to close until September 2, Napoli know there is no hurry.

The club is looking at other attacking options such as Jeremie Boga (Sassuolo) and Sardar Azmoun (Zenit).

Napoli plan to raise funds from various sales to make investments, with Kalidou Koulibaly possibly on his way to Manchester United, Liverpool or PSG.

If Napoli fail to make an offer for Everton Soares, other clubs could come forward. Borussia Dortmund and Everton (the club) have expressed interest in the 14-cap Brazil forward.
