Neres in demand

Having helped Ajax sink Real Madrid’s hopes of winning the Champions League for the fourth consecutive time in the round of 16, David Neres scored a great equalizer in the quarterfinal against Juventus on Wednesday to cancel out Cristiano Ronaldo’s opener for the Old Lady.

The 22-year-old forward arrived to Amsterdam in January 2017 for a reported fee of €12 million, and since then he has played 93 times for the Dutch champions, scoring 29 goals in all competitions. His fine performances, most notably in the Champions League recently, have attracted the interest of a number of top clubs around Europe, as reported by the Mirror.

Borussia Dortmund were reportedly keen on him before, but they will try to take him to the Signal Iduna Park again this summer, should they lose Jadon Sancho. Neres has been a big part of Everton’s transfer plans too, but it seems their neighbours Liverpool and French champions Paris Saint-Germain are also weighing up a move to secure his services. The Toffees will be hoping that the promise of plenty of first-team football will help in their cause against bigger rivals for Neres’ signature.
