Tottenham Hotspur reportedly want to sign the Ajax ace.
According to a report from Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato, Tottenham will attempt to hijack Everton's alleged interest in Ajax ace David Neres by lodging a €60 million (£54 million) bid for the Brazilian winger, and some Spurs fans took to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
The 22-year-old was in fine form for the Dutch outfit last season, racking up an impressive 12 goals and 15 assists in 50 appearances in all competitions, and he would surely be a welcome addition at Spurs.
Tottenham currently have Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen who can all play out wide, but Neres would provide Mauricio Pochettino with another, and quite different, option.
£54 million sounds like a lot of money, but for a player with the South American's talent and potential, it would actually represent decent value for the north London outfit.
Is he the type of player that the Lilywhites need, however?
Some Tottenham fans took to Twitter today, and delivered their verdicts on Neres potentially moving to north London from the Amsterdam Arena...
This is definitely a ploy to try and get Betis to lower their pricetag on Lo Celso— Joe #FireMallee (@PhilaVsEveryone) 26 July 2019
Nah this one is BS, Lo Celso and Dybala will do nicely— DJ (@DJFOOTY) 26 July 2019
Not needed— Ethan (@EthanCOYS) 26 July 2019
I reckon Lamela is off— Jœ (@Joe_Spurs) 26 July 2019
I know these signings are brilliant but levy really needs to see a doctor. Something ain’t right— Louie Alard (@Winksy8) 26 July 2019
No thanks.— Freddie ⚖️ (@Freddie_LR) 26 July 2019
We already have Son , No need to target him. Next it will be Donny Van debeek on the list then hijacking Bruno fernandes transfer to Manchester United.— Dickson Kalumba (@Dickson72004800) 26 July 2019
£54million is too much for Neres.— Jorge-Sensei (@gamaliel_gam) 26 July 2019
Really dont want him, too inconsistent.— Jan (@SonxDele) 26 July 2019
IF we were to get an ajax player, donny van de beek.
What...... This sounds like Ajax bumping up his price.... We can't buy everyone— Oliver Stead (@SpursyMorph) 26 July 2019
Nah no thank you— ᴀʟᴇx | Dybala Propaganda (@_10Kane) 26 July 2019
Loads of rumours this time of year. I doubt we are after him and Everton might see him as a backup option for Zaha.— thfc (@thfc45488373) 26 July 2019
