Gremio look to Japan for Everton Soares replacement

Gremio are selling Everton Soares to Benfica in a €20m-plus deal and must now find a replacement.

The Porto Alegre side, who are also receiving a big fee from Manchester City for Diego Rosa, have money to spend.

However, Gremio plan to use the income wisely amid the current economic climate.

And the player they have been considering in recent days is Everaldo, a Brazilian playing for Kashima Antlers in Japan.

According to UOL Esporte, head coach Renato Gaucho is a fan of Everaldo and considered him last year.

29-year-old Everaldo only moved to the J.League in January, arriving from Liga MX side Queretaro.

He has already made an impact in Japan though, scoring six goals in eight games for the Antlers.

In their last three league games, Everaldo has hit the net five times, including a hat-trick against Oita Trinita.

Everaldo is not the only name on Gremio’s list, but is under serious consideration to fill the void left by Everton.

The Transfermarkt portal gives Everaldo a current market value of €1.2m.
