That is according to ESPN FC pundit and legendary Liverpool defender Steve Nicol.

Neres has been linked with a move to Anfield after a fine season at Ajax.

The Brazilian has played a big part in the Dutch side’s run to the Champions League semi-final.

Nicol is a fan of the 22-year-old, who has scored 12 goals in all competitions this term.

However, he says for Neres’ own career, he should move to a club where he is more guaranteed first-team football.

“This is a strange one, Neres to Liverpool,” Nicol said.

“If I’m Neres, I’m looking at Liverpool’s front three and I’m asking myself ‘Am I going to this team to start? Or am I going to this team to back up to begin with?’.

“He’s certainly at a level of his ability and what he’s producing that he has to go somewhere and play.
