Everton Made £13.2m Bid For Really Promising Brazilian Forward: What Gabriel Veron Could Offer

Must Read

It is not every day that Everton are linked with a player who has had the same honours as the likes of Toni Kroos and Cesc Fàbregas. Still, this time they have managed to insert themselves into the race to sign the Brazilian wonderkid Gabriel Veron. The 17-year-old had a stupendous FIFA U-17 World Cup tournament in 2019 where he won the Golden Ball at the end of the tournament, thereby leading his country to championship glory.

According to ESPN Brasil (as quoted by Metro), Everton had placed a bid in the region of £13.2m before Palmeiras for the youngster, which they have rejected, thus letting Arsenal take a plunge in the transfer mayhem by registering their interest.

After the recent COVID-19 outbreak, it is undoubtedly a fact that clubs like Everton would have a limited purse to operate upon in the transfer market. However, on the other side of the coin, it is also true that Moise Kean has been a complete failure, as he could be on the brink of ending his professional life at the blue end of the Merseyside. Therefore we take a look at why Everton should stretch their bid and try to match the valuation of Palmeiras for Veron, who had incidentally been named after the Argentine legend who once made Old Trafford his home.

The downfall of Kean

Nobody predicted smooth sailing for the Ex-Juventus star in English football. However, what we saw was worse than what anyone could have guessed as the striker’s end product has been beyond disastrous. From being subbed off after 19 minutes to throwing a fit at the manager, the youngster has seen it all in England.

If all of these were not enough, the recent hysterics of the player by throwing a party amidst the global pandemic situation has crossed a barrier, and even ex-players like Darren Bent has urged the club to get rid of the player. Under these circumstances, it makes sense for Everton to cut their losses and let him go.

The hot prospect named Gabriel Veron

It is enough for a young player to carry his team on his shoulders and win the Golden Ball and thereby become world champions to turn the heads of the top clubs of the world. In this context, Gabriel Veron has been no different. Veron is the hottest prospect for Palmeiras since the big-money departure of Gabriel Jesus to Manchester City and the hierarchy at the club believes that Veron would be no different.

Though the Brazilian has only played three games for the club and scored twice in the process, his skills were there for everyone to see. The right-winger has shown immense maturity and calmness on the ball, and many believe that the future of Brazil rests on his shoulders.

Brazilian legend Babeto has vouched for Veron to Correio Brasiliense when he said, “He’s a kid with enormous talent.

“I looked for more information about him and I was impressed once I saw him wearing the No.7 producing beautiful plays.

“I watched him score a goal dribbling from almost his own half before finding the net with a quality finish, calmly beating the opposition goalkeeper.”

When someone of the status of Babeto holds a youngster in such high regard, it is time for others to listen and fans would certainly hope that Ancelotti is listening carefully.
