Such good form has also seen Soares gain a place in the Brazil national side, making 14 appearances in total, and that form is said to have prompted Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti to show further interest.

Ancelotti is keen to put his own stamp on the Everton side and the summer window proposes to be an interesting one for the Merseyside club.

The report goes on to add that Premier League side Everton will not be the only side showing summer interest with Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund following the player’s performances.
