Was the next big thing a few years ago, one of the top wonderkids on FM.

Think he started as a striker but it’s not quite clicked and he’s drifted out to the right as a left footed player who cuts inside.

Still only 22 so plenty of time to turn it around if the attitude is right but I doubt he’d be the answer to our ST problem

Could be the answer to our Walcott ‘problem’, though.. (although I still like Walcott)

Linked with him for a while I seem to recall, id imagine Inter would want a fair bit for him despite the fact he bombed. Easier said than done, but id like us to get someone with a better track record of scoring goals than he has

Is there still a quota on how many non-EU players you can field?

He’s an absolutely unbelievable football player, but has attitude problems and would be a risk.

I could probably get on board with it tbh, if we aren’t getting Lozano or Bergwijn or Ziyech or Neres..
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Wouldn't say no. Maybe having a couple of other Brazilian's guide him could help bring out the best. Still think we should be milking the Brands Lozano relationship to the absolute fullest though.

19 for Santos in 31 games in Brazil. How does Brazilian football compare to the European leagues? He only scored 1 in 9 for Inter. We know about players acclimatising etc, but 1 in 9. We need someone up and running who has proven scoring stats in Europe. Right now, it's what we need. Cenk is labouring, but I'm sure Cenk would be a decent back up to a top quality striker. Especially now we have goals in the team itself. :)

In the 9 matches for Inter he played a total of 111 minutes. 1 goal every 111 minutes is a decent return.

Inter's always a bit of a loopy club as well. Many players don't settle there.

So the stats are a bit misleading? That's what we need to know about really. We do need a striker that will hit the ground running. Where this lads concerned though, there's not much in the way of being able to make practical comparisons.

It strikes me as the type of signing, if we where to make it, of a player who has obvious promise but has lost his way so far in his career.

Maybe with 2 brazillians already here and many portuguese speaking players, he could settle quickly and start showing his best form.

For a decent enough price I would be all for it, partly for the simple reason alone that I never thought in my lifetime I would ever see 3 full Brazillian internationals in an Everton line up.
