Just last month, he became a full Brazil international and his performances are earning him plenty of admirers.

According to The Sun, the 22-year-old is valued at £45million by the Dutch giants, with Arsenal and United prepared to go head-to-head for his signature.

With eight goals and 11 assists in the Eredivisie this season already, it is clear to see why the forward is so highly-rated.

Everton are also reportedly keeping tabs on his situation, ahead of a potential summer move.

Neres arrived in Amsterdam from Sao Paulo in January 2017 for just £10m – going on to feature in the Europa League final against the Red Devils.

His first full campaign in 2017/18 saw him notch 14 goals and 13 assists in 32 league games.
