Everton are being told they've pulled off a coup in the signing of Portuguese youngster Joao Silva.
The Liverpool Echo says the 20-year-old joined Desportivo De Aves' academy aged 10, and his rise has gone far from unnoticed, culminating with him receiving the highest praise a centre forward can receive in Portugal. They compare him to Pauleta.
Now, for a nation which has produced greats such as Eusebio and Cristiano Ronaldo, admittedly many would wonder what the big deal is about comparisons to a relatively low-profile striker who never actually played in Portugal's top flight.
Pauleta scored 48 goals in 88 matches for the national side, and 33 goals in a single season for Paris St Germain. So, high praise indeed for Silva.
