But the French will have heavy competition for the Brazilian. Reports indicate that Everton and Arsenal, both from the Premier League, also move to hire him. In the case of the Gunners, this is a request from the coach Unai Emery.

Everton boss Marco Silva has been reported to have enlisted the player as his top priority and the Premier League club have offered €35 million for the Brazilian.
