Man United and Chelsea keeping tabs on 25-goal South American forward

Posted by

Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with the move for the Porto striker Evanilson.

The 24-year-old striker has been in impressive form this past season, scoring 25 goals in all competitions. He has picked up seven assists along the way as well.

According to a report from Jornal De Noticias, the English clubs are keen on him and they could look to make their move for the striker soon.

It is no secret that Manchester United need another quality goalscorer and the Brazilian could be the ideal partner for Rasmus Hojlund. He could share the goalscoring burden with the Denmark international and allow him to develop without being put under too much pressure. The opportunity to move to Old Trafford will be quite attractive for the Brazilian as well. It would be a major step up from Porto and he would get to showcase qualities at a higher level.

Chelsea could use Evanilson

Meanwhile, Chelsea need to bring in an upgrade on Nicolas Jackson as well. The Brazilian certainly seems like an exciting option and it remains to be seen whether the Blues decide to make a move for him.

However, he has €100 million release clause in his contract, and it is highly unlikely that any club would be willing to offer that kind of money for him. Porto will have to be more reasonable with their demands in order to get the deal done.

The Brazilian will be tempted to move to the Premier League if the opportunity presents itself, and it remains to be seen whether he decides to force an exit.

Tottenham have been linked with the player as well, and they could certainly use a reliable centre forward. They have missed the clinical presence of Harry Kane this past season and Evanilson could be a handy option for them.
