Liverpool Plotting A Move For AFC Ajax winger David Neres

Liverpool are interested in signing AFC Ajax winger David Neres but will face stiff competition from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund in pursuit of the 22-year-old.

According to a recent report by Le10Sport, Ajax will demand a fee around £40m for their prized asset which shouldn't be a major stumbling block for the Reds.

The Brazilian talent came through the youth ranks of Sao Paulo before his high-profile switch to Amsterdam at the start of 2017.

The South American sensation has enjoyed a fantastic season with the Dutch giants thus far after putting in a series of impressive displays for them during this campaign.

It is no surprise that some of the elite European clubs want to recruit him.

What makes the Brazilian so special is his incredible versatility as he can play in several positions across the frontline.

Even though Neres is primarily a right-sided winger, he is equally capable of filling in on the left or down the middle in the number 10 position.

Neres possess blistering pace and is a tricky man to stop when he is dribbling with the ball at top speed.

Thus, Liverpool should do everything in their power to lure Neres to Anfield as he has the potential to strike up a great partnership with his international compatriot Roberto Firmino in the opposition half.

There is also the need for Jurgen Klopp to add more competition for Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah so they are always on their toes when it comes to working hard in training.
