Chelsea’s veteran Dutch scout Piet de Visser believes Ajax have signed two excellent players in Antony and Giovanni.

Antony (20) will join Ajax from Sao Paulo this summer, while Giovanni (18) has already arrived from Santos.

Speaking to Voetbal International, De Visser was full of praise for the Brazilian duo and believes Ajax have got themselves two great talents.

He said on Antony, “Antony, that will be a winner! I have had him high for years. I saw him playing for the first time at age 16, in Brazil Under-17. Wonderful technical football player. You can’t compare him to David Neres or Hakim Ziyech, he really has his own style. A very good, short dribble, a lot speed, a beautiful staircase. “

Giovanni got an even bigger reaction, “Giovanni, oh, oh. Fan-tas-tic player. I am also crazy about him. I saw him playing football at the age of fourteen, as a youth international. He is younger than Antony and not that far yet, but he can move forward.

“He does have that directness in his game. If he dribbles, it will end in an assist or a shot. I have seen him play such good matches. I am frankly surprised that Ajax was able to get him. Great move. I keep following him very well, you can count on it . “
