Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on Everton Soares.

Everton of Gremio drivesr the ball during the match between Gremio and Corinthians as part of Brasileirao Series A 2019 at Arena do Gremio on October 5, 2019 in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Tottenham Hotspur need a right back when the January transfer window opens, but it seems that Mauricio Pochettino has his eyes on another attacker.

Sky Sports report that scout Steve Hitchen was sent over to Brazil earlier this month to see Flamengo take on Gremio in the Copa Libertadores, and two players are now on his radar.

Flamengo hitman Gabriel Barbosa is thought to be a target, but it's Gremio winger Everton Soares that Tottenham are really pursuing.

 

The 23-year-old has hit 12 goals and six assists for Gremio this season, and really starred in 2018 by smashing 16 goals for the Brazilian side.

Over the summer, Everton was joint-top goalscorer at Copa America as he starred for his country, but he didn't earn a big move to Europe.

Spurs are now thought to be keen, seemingly looking to Everton to compete with the likes of Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela in the final third.

Tottenham fans have been taking to Twitter, with some believing Everton would be a 'class buy' and a 'huge' signing if the club can pull it off, adding that he has real quality and is the future of Brazilian football.

Others fear that Pochettino won't even play Everton if he does sign as he keeps fellow Brazilian winger Moura on the bench, with one fan fearing another Paulinho if Spurs sign a Brazilian off the back of a great international campaign.
