Everton join the hunt for Palmeiras young forward Giovani

The upcoming summer will see Everton improving their attacking department. According to multiple reports emanating from Brazil, Everton have joined the hunt for Palmeiras forward Giovani. He has been subject to interest from various Premier League clubs.

Everton FC

The 19-year-old has come through the youth ranks of Palmeiras and has successfully managed to establish himself as a key member of their senior team. He has three and a half years left on his current contract which expires in 2026.

The forward has banged in one goal and provided two assists in 10 matches this term on all fronts.

He is considered to be one of the best young forwards in Brazil. His performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.

Adding a forward remains Everton’s top priority this summer and Sean Dyche will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming months.

Dyche is a firm fan of Palmeiras forward and Everton could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.

The Brazil international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of forward Dyche wants to target in the summer transfer window.

Someone with Giovani’s skillset will undoubtedly add more quality to Sean Dyche‘s attack. The 19-year-old will offer the Everton boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.

World Football Rumours

According to the report, “Everton have joined Newcastle in considering a move for highly-rated 19-year-old Brazilian striker Giovani. A report from ESPN Brasil claims that both Premier League clubs are monitoring the young forward’s situation at his current club Palmeiras. The same outlet had already reported Newcastle’s interest in the player, claiming the Magpies had sent scouts to Brazil to watch him in action. Now they claim that Sean Dyche’s men can be added to that mix ahead of a potential summer bid. Nottingham Forest actually tried and failed with an offer of their own in January and it appears they are no longer in the running for his signature. ESPN Brasil adds that it will take at least €15m (£13.2m) to convince the South American side to sell.”

Giovani is a top-class talent and Palmeiras want to keep him at the club.

A big money bid from Everton could tempt Palmeiras into selling their prized asset.

Should Everton pursue Giovani?

If Giovani is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Everton.

All in all, Giovani will be an ideal choice for Sean Dyche as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his attackers.

It will be interesting to see if Everton are willing to pay the asking price for Giovani.
