AC Milan have reportedly joined three Premier League clubs and Juventus in the race to land an exciting Ajax attacker.

David Neres is having a superb season for the Eredivisie giants, having scored nine goals and contributed 12 assists in just 22 appearances so far this campaign.

He arrived in Holland on the final day of last January’s transfer window from Brazilian side São Paulo for an initial fee of €12million.

In his native Brazil, several journalists have compared the 20-year-old to PSG superstar Neymar and that has led to some of the biggest clubs in Europe showing in an interest in the Brazil Under-20 star.

According to Calciomercato, Milan scouts are watching him regularly but are aware of the intense competition they will face to try and secure his signature.

Juventus, United, Arsenal and Spurs are also keen on the forward, who is valued at around €25million, but Ajax have no intention of selling him before the summer.
