There’s been talk that a top player will leave Wolves this summer to balance the books.

Just yesterday, it was reported that Wolves would consider suitable offers for Ruben Neves or Adama Traore.

Conor Coady is seen as ‘untouchable’, and won’t be joining Tottenham.

But there’s been talk about Neves’ future, with Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool all linked.

Journalist Dean Jones has told The Football Terrace that Arsenal and United are in the hunt for Neves.

“In terms of Neves, [Arsenal] have definitely tried that,” said Jones. “Again, the player not sure if that’s the right move for him at this stage.

“With Manchester United also in view for him, he’d rather wait things out and see whether that can actually come to fruition.”

So basically, Arsenal have tried to sign Neves but he’s not convinced so far and has turned them down.

Arsenal couldn’t even offer Neves European football.

 

And acccording to Di Marzio, Arsenal would rather land Manuel Locatelli from Sassuolo but don’t feel he’s attainable.

So Neves won’t exactly be feeling the love and he wouldn’t be moving to a club playing in Europe.

Add in how much he’s loved at Wolves and it’s very easy to see why he’s snubbed the move so far.

We’ll see if United firm up their interest. They are playing in the Champions League and have made two big signings in Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.

A new midfielder like Neves could help push them onto the next level to be title contenders, but they’d have to pay up.

The most recent reports on Neves’ asking price claim it’s now £50 million. If United got to that price, in this climate, it would give Wolves something to think about.

Losing the midfielder would be a huge blow but Bruno Lage could reshape the squad with that cash. We’re seemingly a long way off that yet, though.
