Supporters of Everton have aired that they are desperate for the club to sign Everton Soares from Brazilian outfit, Gremio.
In the past week, the 23-year-old attacker has been heavily linked with a move to the Toffees (as per Gazeta Esportiva), which, on Wednesday evening, had fans desperate to see the winger arrive at the club.
Should Everton try to sign Everton Soares this month? ?

Yes from both a playing standpoint and a marketing standpoint I would definitely get an Everton shirt with Everton on the back!

If they can make the figures work and find some club to buy Schneiderlin then YES ?#EFC

Would a front three of Richarlison - Calvert-Lewin - Everton Soares be Everton's best for some time?
Yes, that would be class
No, no better than Bernard
During the season, the wide man featured in 30 Brazilian Serie A games, in which he bagged an impressive 11 goals and five assists for Gremio (as per Transfermarkt).
Across the whole of his career in Brazil, Everton has scored 47 goals and has 16 assists in 177 games (per Transfermarkt), leaving fans keen for Carlo Ancelotti to seal his arrival.
Yes definitely the best player currently in South America

100% get him signed NOW! Would be brilliant! And Dakonam, £15/16m could seal it, ex CB! In La Liga team of year, 2 years running!!

What do we think?
The Brazilian is currently rated at £31.5 million with three years left on his contract (as per Transfermarkt), if the Toffees can strike up a deal for the 23-year-old for around his value, that would represent a good deal in the current market.
While little is known about whether or not he could cut it in the Premier League having played nowhere other than with Gremio, he could be a hidden gem.
