Tottenham have been linked with David Neres to replace Christian Eriksen, whose agent is heading for Madrid this weekend, all in the papers.



Calciomercato claim Spurs are plotting a move for Ajax attacking midfielder David Neres.

Only last week Neres was linked with Liverpool, by the very same outlet, which may well suggest they’re having a wild stab in the dark about the 22-year-old Brazilian’s future.

Spurs though do look increasingly likely to lose Christian Eriksen with the Daily Star claiming the Denmark international’s agent expected to travel to Spain for talks with Real Madrid this weekend.

Neres helped the Dutch giants to the last four in the Champions League and hit 12 goals and 15 assists last season.

Neres, who can play all across the front line, has scored twice this season and his contract with Ajax currently runs until 2023.

Man Utd have also been mentioned as suitors previously but Neres signed a 12-month extension to his contract over the summer to quell the speculation.

Yahoo journalist Jorge Nicola (via Sport Witness) revealed in the summer that United did present an offer for Neres before he signed his new deal, but Ajax want €70m for him.
