It is no surprise to see so many Everton fans drooling over the prospect of signing Ajax attacker David Neres this summer after the Brazil international had a superb season with the Dutch giants. The 22-year-old scored 12 goals and supplied 15 assists in 50 appearances across all competitions as Ajax won the Eredivisie, the Dutch Cup and came within seconds of reaching the Champions League final. Marco Silva has not shied away from signing Portuguese-speaking players at Goodison Park with Andre Gomes and Brazilian duo Richarlison and Bernard both snapped up last summer. So why not add Neres to the mix as well? According to Brazilian news outlet UOL, Everton are making good progress in their negotiations to sign the Ajax star this summer but face competition from Paris Saint-Germain. However it is understood that Neres would rather join a team in the Premier League and that is why there are some Evertonians on Twitter that are very excited.
