Chelsea enter the race to sign Eder Militao

Chelsea enter the race to sign Eder Militao Chelsea have joined a host of other sides in the hunt for Porto defender Eder Militao. The centre back only joined Porto in the Summer, but is already being touted with a move away, with Manchester United, Everton and Juventus all showing interest in him. However the Daily Mail report that Chelsea have joined the race for Militao, with Porto potentially ready to make a quick profit on the Brazilian. Porto only paid £7.2 million for Militao in the Summer, signing the defender from Sao Paulo. The defender has played 12 times for Porto, and scored in the UEFA Champions League against Schalke last week. In a surprising turn of events, the defender also has the same agents as Chelsea stars David Luiz and Willian, which could tempt Militao to join the Blues this January.

EVERTON want to sign Brazil international defender Eder Militao but will need to pay £17million to get him in, according to reports.

Everton target Gabigol to seek UK work permit.
Everton could be edging closer to the signing of Gabigol. The Toffees are in almost desperate need of a new striker in the January transfer window, and some have suggested that the 22-year-old could be the man to end Marco Silva’s woe. Gabigol, also known as Gabriel, also known as Gabriel Barbosa Almeida, is owned by Internazionale, but has spent the 2018 season on loan at Santos. The return to his old club has proved fruitful for the Brazilian, who scored 27 goals in 53 appearances for his boyhood team. However, multiple clubs are said to be keen on bringing the forward to the Premier League – including Everton. A Yahoo report (relayed by Sport Witness) claims that Gabigol is in negotiations with a club from the English top-flight, and will pursue a work permit for the United Kingdom. If the Football Association look kindly upon the request, the Brazilian international could be arriving on these shores before January is up.
