David Edwards says Ruben Neves is now worth £100m

Midfielder Ruben Neves netted the winner for Wolves as they beat Brentford 2-1 in a dramatic game at the weekend.

Neves has had an impressive season and continues to go from strength to strength.

There was a fair amount of chatter about Neves’ future in the summer, but there has been less this month.

Perhaps that is because of how much it would now cost to sign him and former Molineux midfielder David Edwards has written in his Express and Star column that he thinks Neves is now worth £100 million.

“Ruben Neves is on course to be an absolute superstar,” he said.

“Joao Moutinho was willing to come to Wolves as a Champions League-level player and is still producing at his age. He’s getting better and better.

“I believe Neves is arguably the best midfielder in the Premier League at the moment. The bigger clubs should be knocking Wolves’ door down.

“He would be a bargain at anything under £100million at the moment, he really would. He does everything you want from a holding midfielder.”

There was talk of a £40 million asking price on Neves’ head in the summer and that felt cheap at the time.

That was before he enjoyed this outstanding season, showcasing his physical qualities under Bruno Lage as well as the technical ability we all know he has.

He is getting back amongst the goals which is vital for a Wolves side which does not score many, and will be vital in the push for Europe.

Neves came back into the side after having Covid but showed no lingering effects as they rounded off a perfect January with another win.
