This is astonishing, considering that the player joined the Dutch club only this summer from Sao Paulo for a modest sum of €12 million.
Further, Ajax have been clear in recent months that no offer for the Brazilian will be entertained till at least the summer window.
However, with the recent sacking of Marcel Keizer, the side is certainly in some form of disarray, and as of such, might not be in the best position to say no if a big offer comes knocking.
And that might very much prove to be the case, considering that nearly all of the managers are highly intent on securing his services. Further, nearly all the interested sides are destinations that will prove apt for a player of his age and caliber to develop at.
With nine goals and twelve assists in a mere twenty-two games, it is easy to see why the South American starlet has achieved the unique nickname of ‘Little Neymar’. But whether or not the youngster will follow in his footsteps will be interesting to see.
With the financial backing that nearly all of his suitors enjoy, the youngster could very well be set to make a step up in his career when the January window opens in the New Year.
