Arsenal are in talks to sign Ajax winger David Neres but face competition from Manchester United, according to reports.

The 22-year-old has been in sublime form for the Dutch club this season with 12 goals and 15 assists so far, while his latest strike came in the 1-1 draw against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.

Neres was also rewarded for his fine performances with his first Brazil cap last month and he provided two assists in a 3-1 victory over Czech Republic.

The Brazilian has attracted interest from several Premier League clubs, but according to The Daily Telegraph, Arsenal have begun negotiations with Ajax over a potential deal.
