Everton forward Richarlison has told his Brazilian international teammate David Neres to join him on Merseyside this summer.

David Neres plays his club football for Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam at the moment though it must be pointed out that Everton are one of the top two favourites for his signature this summer alongside French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG).

The 22-year-old has publicly talked about his preference for the Premier League thus making Everton the front-runners for his signature.

Richarlison is a blueprint for David Neres on how he can easily adapt to the Premier League if he decides to move to the top flight of English football.

The Everton attacker joined Watford from Brazilian Serie A club Fluminense in 2017 before signing for the Toffees last summer for an initial fee of £40m that could still rise to £50m depending on add-ons.

He went on to score 13 league goals for Everton in his debut season for the Merseyside giants.

David Neres was previously linked with both Arsenal and Chelsea but the two London clubs are far behind in the race to sign the player.

Richarlison and David Neres played for the Brazilian u-20 team together and the two players are currently on Brazilian duty at the ongoing COPA America on home soil.

Richarlison spoke to reporters about David Neres and Everton immediately after the 3-0 win over Bolivia in the 2019 COPA America opener.

According to him, he has discussed the possibility of an Everton transfer with the Ajax Amsterdam forward.

French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) have won the race to sign in-demand Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt according to the latest development on the race to sign him.

Matthijs De Ligt is widely regarded as the best teenage defender in the world and several clubs have battled to sign him for the better part of the last few months.

According to trusted Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, French champions PSG have won the race to sign De Ligt ahead of other clubs including Spanish champions Barcelona.

The Catalan giants were heavy favourites to land the hugely talented Dutch international centre back but the Spaniards have been beaten to his signing.

It was revealed that the player’s agent Mino Raiola is in the French capital Paris to complete the transfer to PSG who offered a higher salary than Barcelona.

Premier League giants Manchester United were also in the running after making an offer of £75m (transfer fee) and £350,000 (weekly wages) for him but the lack of Champions League football was their greatest undoing.

Newly crowned Champions League winners Liverpool also wanted to sign him but the Reds will miss out to PSG.

Apart from PSG, Manchester United and Liverpool, others like Bayern Munich and Juventus also tried to sign him.

Matthijs De Ligt

Ajax Amsterdam skipper Matthijs De Ligt has revealed that he’s in no rush to decide his next club despite the intense transfer rumours linking him with a move away from his boyhood club.

Dutch international De Ligt came through the famed Ajax Amsterdam Academy before going on to captain the team at a young age.

He became the youngest captain ever in the history of Ajax Amsterdam at the age of 18.

The 19-year-old recently captained Ajax Amsterdam to a domestic double for the first time in over a decade and also helped the four-time European champions reach the Champions League semifinals before they were eliminated by North London giants Tottenham Hotspur.

His form for Ajax Amsterdam has attracted the interest of a lot of clubs on the European football scene.

Major European sides like French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Italian Serie A giants Juventus, German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have all registered their interest in the centre back.

Premier League outfits like Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool are also not left out of the scramble for the talented player.

In his latest interview after the UEFA Nations League final, De Ligt told reporters that he won’t rush into a decision over his future.

De Ligt is likely to set his future club back to the tune of £75m.
