Grêmio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense, the two-time Brazilian champions who have won the CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores three times, rank just below the top tier of favorites to win this year’s South American continental championship, at 9-1 odds, according to Newsweek. But they may have an extra jolt of motivation as they enter the first leg of their Round of 16 match against heavy underdogs Club Libertad of Asunción, Paraguay. That motivation is their 23-year-old star attacker Everton Soares, who is already in his sixth year with Grêmio.
Everton led Brazil to the Copa America title earlier this month, and now has a chance to win another continental title with his club team before a rumored jump to Europe, in the match that will live stream from Porto Alegre.

Last week, Everton said that he could not promise that he would be with the Grêmio club for the Round of 16 match, after English Premier League side Arsenal were rumored to be assembling a bid for the left-side attacker who has scored 41 goals in 178 games across all competitions for the Brazilian Serie A club, per Soccerway.
Grêmio were said to be insisting on a non-negotiable transfer fee of about $45 million for the young star, according to Metro UK. Whether Arsenal will meet that price remains unclear, but Spanish side Atlético Madrid has already reportedly offered about $38 million for Everton.
