David Neres is a player in demand, with Liverpool, Arsenal and Everton among the clubs reportedly interested in the Ajax winger.
Brazilian outlet UOL Esporte has reported that French giants PSG want him, but it is Chelsea who could have an advantage over them all.
According to The Daily Mail, Chelsea could turn forwards Neres with their target Luka Jovic looking set to join Real Madrid - if, of course, the Blues have their transfer ban imposed by FIFA frozen - and they have an advantage.
“Chelsea enjoy a positive relationship with Neres' agents Giuliano Bertolucci and Kia Joorabchian, with the pair representing Blues defender David Luiz,” adds the report.
The Daily Mail has claimed that Neres is rated at £40 million, and if Chelsea are eventually able to sign players this summer, then they could steal a march on Tottenham, Arsenal and Everton in the race for the 22-year-old Brazil international winger.
According to WhoScored, the youngster made 20 starts and nine substitute appearances in the Eredivisie for Ajax, scoring eight goals and providing eight assists in the process.
The attacker also scored two goals and provided two assists in 11 Champions League appearances for his Dutch club this campaign, according to WhoScored.
