Despite the fact that Ajax did not win the Eredivisie title, the Dutch giants had one of the most promising prospects in Europe in their squad this season, but he might not stay in the team for a longer period of time.
We are talking about David Neres, a 21-year-old Brazilian forward who joined Ajax in a €12 million deal from Sao Paulo 18 months ago, and a player who quickly became an important piece for the Amsterdam Arena side. But this season has been his breakthrough, as Neres finished the Eredivisie campaign with 14 goals and 11 assists in 32 league appearances.
Those performances will force teams to start making calls towards Ajax, and there is one team that already submitted a bid for the Brazil. According to a report from local newspaper De Telegraaf, Borussia Dortmund already submitted a €30 million bid for the Brazilian, but it is believed that Ajax rejected the offer.
Tottenham Hotspur are also keen on the Brazilian, but the Spurs haven’t made an official approach yet. And it is believed that Neres will try to force his way out of Ajax since he wants to play for a bigger team next season.
Only time will tell where he will play next. But it is becoming increasingly likely that it won’t be at Ajax after the 2018 World Cup.
