Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will need to sign new players in attack sooner rather than later and recent developments on Ajax star David Neres’ future at the Eredivisie outfit could well provide the answer.
During the Reds’ title-winning season, reports in the Italian press and media emerged stating that David was a target of interest to Klopp.
It was suggested at the time that the player may well be seen as a possible replacement for Mohamed Salah, amid growing speculation linking the Egyptian with a move to Spain.
No such deal materialised and Mohamed ended up playing a key role in helping his side win their first top-flight league title in 30 years.
That same campaign saw Neres’ season cut short with a knee problem and he subsequently lost his place in the Brazil roster.
But the 24-year-old forward is still considered as a top talent in Europe and with little under two years left on his current deal, a move away from de Joden could well be on the cards.
According to the Spanish newspaper AS, a new ‘opportunity’ has arisen in the latest weeks with the South American struggling to establish himself as a regular first-team player this campaign.
The Anfield outfit will be in a position where they are looking to strengthen their squad going forward and at £23 million (€26 million), the former Sao Paulo ace would certainly be a viable option.
