Everton transfer news: Richarlison reveals talks with Ajax ace over Goodison Park switch | Football | Sport
Neres is one of the most in-demand attackers in Europe after a stellar season for Ajax as he helped them to the domestic double in Holland and the Champions League semi-finals.
The winger is currently with Richarlison at the Copa America and interest in him is expected to be high when the tournament has finished.
And the Everton star is hoping to convince him to join him in the blue half of the city.
Asked about Everton’s links, he said: “Yeah, I read something about that.
“I’ve spoken to him about it already.
“I told him the doors are open for him there, and that he could help us a lot.
“I hope he comes. He’d be very welcome there.
“I’ve known him since we played together for Brazil’s U20 side, and he’s a guy I get along with really well. Hopefully I’ll see him there.
“He’s a player who really attacks defenders and runs at his marker, so he’s got the right profile.
“With me and Bernard there, it would work really well.”
Neres was also asked about his future and revealed he would like the chance to play in the Premier League.
“I try to stay focused on what’s happening on the pitch, and on the competition I’m playing in,” he said.
“I leave those things to my agents to deal with.
“Of course the Premier League interests me. It’s the best league in the world, and I’ve always wanted to play there. But I leave all that in God’s hands.”
He scored eight goals and chipped in with another eight assists in the Eredivisie last term as Ajax claimed their 34th title.
