Premier League outfit Everton are keen to land Ajax star David Neres in the summer, according to UOL Esporte.
The versatile forward has been in fantastic form for the Dutch giants this season; netting 11 goals and contributing 15 assists to the team.
The Brazilian has previously been linked with Milan, according to UOL Esporte, but the Toffees are emerging as strong contenders for his signature.
Neres to Everton seems to be picking up pace based on the 22-year-old sharing an agent with Richarlison and Bernard.
A squad overhaul could take place at Goodison Park over the summer. Marco Silva will be desperate to land a few star attractions to push the club forward.
Neres won’t come cheap. Neres is valued at around £40 million, according to the report.
Everton will also face competition given the quality of the player.
This transfer would really make teams stand up and take notice of Everton.
Neres has been instrumental for Ajax this season, with his goal in the Champions League win over Real Madrid a particular highlight.
He won’t come cheap for the Toffees but for too long Everton have shopped in the bargain buckets.
Perhaps this interest is a sign that the Merseysiders aren’t going to hang around any longer.
The only way Everton can ensure progression is to back Silva with big-money signings in the summer window.
Neres would represent a great start and would be seen as a big coup for the Toffees.
