Arsenal already have interest in Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico and are weighing up whether to bid for Neres too in the knowledge his price is escalating each week.
Ajax rejected a £37.5million bid from Guangzhou Evergrande in January and have also fielded enquiries from Borussia Dortmund but Neres is keen on a move to the Premier League and Ajax know that Arsenal apart, there is also interest from Manchester United, Everton and Liverpool.
Ajax have agreed to sell Frenkie de Jong to Barcelona, they expect captain Matthijs de Ligt to follow and are happy to let an auction unfold for Neres with the highest bidder winning.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add a winger in a bid to recapture the attacking style Manchester United were long associated with while Jurgen Klopp wants competition for Mo Salah and Sadio Mane though may look elsewhere if the price goes too high.
