Barcelona are reportedly tracking two Brazilian players. Mundo is reporting that Gremio forward Everton and Flamengo defender Rodrigo Caio are being watched closely by Barcelona.

Everton is a 23-year-old forward that netted the most goals for Brazil in the Copa America. In his Gremio career he’s scored 63 goals and made it clear he’s a forward to be desired.

Caio on the other hand, joined Flamengo in January. He left the only senior club he’d played for, hometown Sao Paulo. The main concern with making a move for Caio is his injury history. He missed out on the 2018 World Cup due to an ACL injury.
