Arsenal scouts watch Brazilian talisman – but Manchester United and Liverpool are also keen

David Neres Ajax Arsenal

Arsenal had scouts watching David Neres at the Champions League quarter-final between Juventus and Ajax, according to reports. 

According to the Mail, the race for Neres is hotting up and Arsenal are contemplating a bid.

The scouts watched on as Neres, 22, helped Ajax defeat Juventus on a historic night.

Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico has also been linked with a move to Arsenal, and has already admitted that he would like a move to the Premier League.

Neres is also thought to prefer a move to England over anywhere else.

But Arsenal aren't the only ones sniffing around the Brazilian winger - Manchester United and Liverpool have also registered interest.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add attacking flair to his United side, while Liverpool need more numbers out wide to compete with their deadly front three.

A £37.5 million bid from China in January offered an indicator of Neres's price tag, but Ajax's continued success may be pushing it even higher.
