Reports link Flamengo with Tigres attacking midfielder Éverton
Éverton of Tigres de la UANL, more commonly known as Tigres, is set to join Flamengo according to LANCE and will be have a medical on Friday in Rio de Janeiro.
The 25-year-old was on loan at Atlético Paranaense last season and has been negotiating with Flamengo for the past 20 days but could still move to the side he appeared for last season.
The Hurricane apparently has until Monday to exercise the rights for his purchase, his current Mexican club have asked for £4.8 million but a lot depends on tomorrows actions.
Éverton played for Flamengo on loan in 2008 and 2009 and looks set for a return to the club in a position where they need reinforcements.
Last season he played the majority of his 33 Brasileirão appearances behind the forward in attacking midfielder and scored three times, whilst contributing four assists.
The Rio de Janeiro club struggled in front of goal last season scoring just 43 times and they’ll hope this signing will give them more creativity.
Éverton will hope if he does move to Flamengo that he can enjoy success in 2014 and have an extended spell at the team.
