CaughtOffside’s South American football correspondent Tom Weber will be providing day-to-day updates on all things Copa America throughout the tournament so make sure you visit to keep up to date!
The Sao Paulo attacking midfielder is being touted as yet another wonderkid to be emerging from South America. He is your typical Brazilian player, pacey with great skill and flair with a fantastic ability to cut in off the wings. He has attracted interest from a host of the best clubs in Europe and rumours have been circulating that the Brazilians have rejected a bid of €40million from Chelsea. Some good performances in the Copa America may not just prove that price-tag, but raise it further.
