Newcastle, Everton chasing Palmeiras youngster Giovani

Two Premier League clubs are set to do battle in the pursuit of Palmeiras youngster Giovani.

The 19-year-old forward is the subject of serious interest from Everton and Newcastle United.

ESPN Brasil states that Newcastle have already sent scouts to watch Giovani in South America.

While the player has a high release clause, the source states that a bid of around €15 million would tempt Palmeiras into selling.

While Newcastle have the greater financial might, Everton may have a chance at this transfer.

Giovani may see the Toffees, if they remain in the Premier League, as a good option to get regular game time next season.
