According to Manchester Evening NewsRuben Neves is now set to leave Wolves this summer, and Arsenal are among the clubs interested in him.
The Portuguese midfielder has been Wolves’ star man for years but it looks like he’s ready to take the next step in his career and join a true elite club.
Barcelona have been linked lately, but according to the MENArsenal are also keen.
Unfortunately for the Gunners, Neves’ representatives are more interested in joining another Premier League club – Manchester United.
Neves is, of course, represented by Jorge Mendes, and with Mendes’ relationship with United looking rather strong following Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford, it looks like the super-agent might be ready to do United another favor.
However, transfers aren’t always that simple, and with Arsenal leading Manchester United in the race for the top four, the Gunners could be in the game with a landing cry from the Wolves star if they manage to secure this final place in the Champions League. .
Neves is no stranger to Champions League football. He captained Porto in the competition aged just 18, and after a five-year absence from Europe’s top table with Wolves, he may well want his next move to be to a club that will play in Europe’s premier competition. next season.
Neves would fit brilliantly into the Arsenal squad. He’s been called a ‘sensational’ midfielder in the past and he could be a fantastic addition for the Gunners.
Of course, however, it won’t come cheap. Neves has already been touted as a £100million player, and while he’s unlikely to hit that kind of fee this summer, it’s hard to imagine Wolves letting him go for anything that would be considered a an advantageous price.
