Neres is a very, versatile player. He used to play for São Paulo as a right winger, but he soon was sold to Ajax. At Ajax, in 16/17 and 17/18 he played as a right winger mostly, but in 18/19, Ziyech went to the right winger and Neres to the left winger, but has played a few games as a number 8 in 4-3-3. Now he plays mostly on the left wing.David Neres... interesting.
I’m late to the party and have only very recently seen a bit of him at Ajax as the CL has progressed. How versatile is he, for those who know more than me? Can he cover wing and through the middle? And he looked like he had decent pace and skill to me, but what are his strengths, for those who might have seen more of him than me?
I’m a sucker for a good transfer rumor though, so I’m on board with this... or Bergwijn... or Werner.
He is a good dribbler, has some good pace and his movement is also very good for a teenager. Even though he's scored a lot of goals in the past 2 years, I'd say he is not exactly a great finisher. Oh, and I think he could bulk a little bit more, I think he would suffer a little bit in England.
As a Brazilian, I'm kind of surprised about how good he looks, especially in big games.
But if we are looking for a versatile winger, with great dribbling and a better finisher, I'd totally recommend Grêmio's Everton. He is better than Neres imo, a more complete player and more decisive. He is the best player in Brazil for the past two years. He's been linked with City and Milan and 100% will leave in the summer. I think he might be on the same level as Mané, or pretty close, but with better dribbling skills and finishing.
