Everton, Arsenal chasing Palmeiras striker Gabriel Veron

Palmeiras striker Gabriel Veron is attracting Premier League interest.

Everton and Arsenal are both in the hunt for Veron, with club president Mauricio Galiotte comparing him to Gabriel Jesus.

Gabriel Jesus hit 28 goals across two seasons at the club before joining Manchester City in January 2017 in a landmark £27 million deal.

"Veron will follow the story of Gabriel Jesus here, we have no doubt of that. We hope he stays at Palmeiras for a long time," Galiotte said of Veron.

Brazilian media sources say Everton have been rebuffed with a £12 million offer for him.
