ATK, the Kolkata based franchise of Indian Super League have assembled perhaps the best group of Indian footballers this season of any ISL side. Now the two times ISL champions have set their eyes in making some prominent overseas signings, a department in which they seriously suffered last season.
According to sources, the Red and Whites are all set to rope in former Mumbai City FC attacker Everton Santos. The Brazillian was seen donning the jersey of the Mumbaikars last season where he netted 7 times in 16 appearances and impressed the critics in a not so convincing season of the Ranbir Kapoor co-owned side.
An ATK official said to Talk Sports 24X7 about the Everton Santos signing,”Very unofficially, I can say yes. He’s contracted to Botafogo Ribeirao Prãto in Braseileiro Serie C till 31.08. We’ll put out a release on 1st”.
The 31-Year old winger cum striker have played for some prominent names like Corinthians, Fluminense, Paris Saint-Germain etc. in his career. Besides Mumbai City FC, Santos is well-experienced in Asian football as well having played for some top Asian clubs like FC Seoul, Ulsan Hyundai etc.
