Everton boss Marco Silva has his eyes on the Ajax attacker, and may just be edging closer to bringing him to Goodison Park.

According to UOL Esporte, Everton are making great progress in negotiations with David Neres.

The Telegraph claim that Everton would be willing to pay £35 million for Neres this summer and reports in the Brazilian’s homeland suggest that the Toffees have now surprisingly become the favourites for his signature.

Despite competition from PSG and Arsenal, Everton are currently winning the race for the attacker, who has impressed hugely with Ajax this past season.

 

It is said that Neres wants to come to England and play in the Premier League, which gives them an advantage over PSG.

Everton also have more money to spend this summer than Arsenal, and discussions have gone very well with the Ajax man.

Everton are said to be finding negotiations with Neres ‘easy’, as they already have a strong contingent of Brazilians at the club.

It is thought that deals for Richarlison and Bernard have helped convince Neres that a move to Goodison Park would be a good one.

If Everton pull off the transfer it could be their most exciting signing in years, and would really be a statement of intent.

The prospect of having Neres and Richarlison attacking down either flank is very exciting for Toffees fans, and they could be a real danger in the Premier League next season.
