‘Talk About A Bargain’ ‘Would Be Great Deal’ – Chelsea Fans Back £34.5m Swoop For Brazilian Flyer If Ban Is Lifted

Chelsea are among four Premier League teams interested in Ajax winger David Neres, according to reports in the UK.

Arsenal, Everton and Manchester United are all said to be keeping tabs on the Brazilian international, who has impressed playing in the Champions League this season.

Ajax are believed to be holding out for €40m (£34.5m); a figure which is well within the reach of the English teams.

The Blues’ interest obviously depends on the club’s transfer ban being lifted by FIFA but fans on Twitter are pretty keen on the club recruiting the 22-year-old:

With Eden Hazard’s future still up in the air, it seems perfectly logical that the club would be looking at potential alternatives if they are allowed to make signings.

Christian Pulisic may be arriving from Borussia Dortmund in the summer but additional firepower would be needed on the flanks if Hazard departs.

Neres has been in excellent form for Ajax, having scored 12 goals and provided 15 assists in 44 appearances this campaign.
