'No Napoli offer for Everton'

Gremio’s President has declared that ‘there are no offers right now’ for Brazil winger Everton Soares, who has been linked with Napoli.

Everton’s father and agent have made no secret of interest from Napoli in recent days, but Romildo Bolzan Jr asserted the 24-year-old was still very much Gremio’s player. 

“There are no offers right now,” he told CalcioNapoli24.

“There was a conversation between the player’s representatives and Napoli more than a month ago, but it didn’t progress.

“Generally speaking, a European club buys 100 percent of a player’s economic rights.

“Therefore we must work on the basis of 100 percent and then negotiate with each party.

“That means Gremio will no longer have 50%, they’ll be able to get more.”

Romildo was referring to the fact Gremio do not own all of the player’s economic rights, which are shared with various third parties, although they do possess a majority stake.
