The 19-year-old, who only made his first-team debut for Sao Paulo in October, sealed a €15 million move to Ajax in January.

Ajax fans are eager to see their new boy in action and speaking to Voetbal International, scout Piet de Visser has revealed that he spotted Neres talent on a scouting trip last year.

De Visser said, “I saw David Neres last year excel in the Copa Sao Paulo with Ajax scout Hans van ser Zee.

“He is sometimes a bit erratic and will have to get used to the Dutch league, but the potential is definitely there. He has a lot of growth opportunities.”

Neres is currently in South America with Brazil’s U20’s and will make his Ajax debut later this month.
