Evanilson could be in the sights of Arsenal and Newcastle for next season

Striker Evanilson, who plays for Porto, could be in the sights of Arsenal and Newcastle for the next season of European football. The two English teams are looking for reinforcements for the attack and see the Brazilian as a good option.

According to the English newspaper FourFourTwoArsenal are looking for new options for the offensive sector at the request of coach Mikel Arteta.

The Spanish coach had the chance to see Evanilson up close on the field in the clash between the teams in the round of 16 of the Champions League. The player was a starter for Porto in both matches, which ended with Arsenal qualifying on penalties.

In addition to the Brazilian, the English club would also be monitoring center forwards Victor Osimhen, from Napoli, and Ivan Toney, from Brentford.

Newcastle, in turn, suffered from several injuries that hampered the team’s performance during the season. Therefore, according to the newspaper, the London club is looking to reinforce its squad in the next transfer window.

Despite striker Alexander Isak having a good season for Newcastle, Evanilson is seen as a good alternative to share the responsibility of the team’s attack.

Revealed by Fluminense and with a spell at Tombense, Evanilson arrived at Porto in 2020. In Portugal, he has already played 146 games and scored 57 goals. This season, the 24-year-old striker has been having his best campaign, with 22 goals scored in 35 matches.
