Interviewed by MilanNews.it, Marcio Cruz, agent of Brazilian international winger Everton Soares (24), talked about his client having been close to join Rossoneri: "During 2019 summer window, AC Milan made Gremio a proposal over Everton, but O Imortal turned them down. I was in Milan last November, and I briefly met Paolo Maldini, together with other Rossoneri executives. They told me they weren't going at Everton in January, while they could have tried again in summer 2020. Now, of course, due to the emergency ongoing, it's all up in the air. Everton's transfer fee? It's mostly up to Gremio". The 1996-born is tracked by many more clubs, including Arsenal, Everton (no pun intended), Manchester City, ,Bayern Munich, and PSG.
