Liverpool Join Atletico Madrid In Hunt For £35m Rated Brazilian Speed Merchant


Liverpool are interested in signing Ajax winger David Neres, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

The German newspaper reports that manager Jurgen Klopp sees him as a possible alternative signing to the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele.

Neres could be available for €39m (£36m) but the Brazilian international is also believed to be the subject of a bid from Atletico Madrid.

Ajax’s sporting director Marc Overmars revealed to the Dutch press last week that they had received an offer from the La Liga club, but said they were determined to keep the 22-year-old. However, reports in Spain suggest Atletico have made no such bid for the player.

Neres did have an excellent season for Ajax, having scored 12 goals and laid on 15 assists in 50 appearances for the Eredivisie side.

In addition to the Reds and Atletico, the winger has also been interesting the likes of Manchester United and Everton this summer.
