Everton fans are excited by suggestions that they are favourites to sign David Neres.

Everton had been linked with Neres earlier in the summer, but the transfer appeared a long-shot.

Neres had some high profile clubs after him, following an impressive season with Ajax.

 

However, UOL Esporte in Brazil has suggested that Everton are now leading the way to sign Neres.

The winger wants a move to the Premier League, and Everton are said to be finding negotiations ‘easy’ at this stage.

Toffees fans are now excited that a transfer could happen, and they feel that Neres would be a brilliant addition to Marco Silva’s side.

Neres scored 12 goals and claimed 15 assists for Ajax over the past campaign.

The Brazilian has looked a major threat in Holland, and would be an eye-catching addition to the Toffees line-up for next season.

Everton already have a strong contingent of South Americans at the club, meaning Neres could fit in well at Goodison Park.
