English Premier League outfit Liverpool have been told that they can now land their star target David Neres in this summer transfer window, according to a claim by De Telegraaf journalist Marcel van der Kraan.

According to him, Ajax are now ready to part ways with the forward but they have been told that they will have to pay the sum of £80m before he would be released.

Liverpool have been told that they are not alone in the chase of the star player and that makes his fee higher than expected.

David Neres scored a total of 12 goals for Ajax last season and was a major part of the team that delivered a good run in the UEFA Champions League before they were eliminated in the semi-final.

However, the journalist confirmed that Ajax have been receiving offers for David Neres, noting that a Chinese club offered £50 million but there is yet to be talks on the move.

It is claimed that Marc Overmars is not interested in seeing David Neres move to the Chinese league and most importantly, wants him around for another season.

The situation is now left for Liverpool to either push for a move for the player or hold back.
