Palmeiras concluded this Friday (13), their preparation to face RB Bragantino for the seventh round of the Brazilian Championship. The duel will take place this Saturday (14), at 16:30, at Allianz Parque, and the team led by the Portuguese Abel Ferreira seeks his second victory in the competition to get out of the ‘middle’ of the table.
However, this Friday (13), news outside the pitch stirred the backstage and Palmeiras fans. Everyone already knows about the tireless struggle of the Verdão board to find a new number 9 for the team, which has been a priority for some time now. However, the possible ‘loss’ of an attacker was what made the news.
According to journalist Thaigor Janke, from Rádio Bandeirantes in Rio Grande do Sul, Internacional is interested in counting on the talent of striker Deyverson for the future of the season. That’s because the player has a contract with Palmeiras until the middle of the year and after the end of the agreement he can join any team.
According to the Palmeiras Online portal, the offensive sector is Internacional’s priority: “The Internacional’s board sees the hiring of a striker as a priority, despite counting on Alemão, Wesley and Matheus Cadorini as options for the position. Thus, Deyverson’s name appears as an option to improve the team’s offensive use for the rest of the season.“says the website.
If the negotiation really takes place, Palmeiras will see one of its most controversial characters (positively and negatively), reinforcing a Brazilian rival. For Verdão, Deyverson has 140 matches, where he collaborated with 30 goals scored and 10 assists distributedwith one of those goals being the one that gave the Libertadores title to the Club in 2021, against Flamengo.
