Report: Arsenal eyeing move for Wolves star Ruben Neves

Wolverhampton Wanderers will reportedly consider offers for Ruben Neves this summer, and now a Premier League club have seemingly come to the table.

According to the Times, Arsenal have registered their interest in the midfielder.

Their report claims the Gunners have begun work on a deal to sign the 24-year-old.

Neves is one of three high value assets who could be sold this summer – the others being Adama Traore and Pedro Neto.

A recent report from The Athletic had claimed the club ‘expect’ to sell Neves for around £35 million.

Dani Ceballos’ return to Real Madrid, and Lucas Torreira not being in favour at the Emirates, makes it understandable that Arsenal would want someone linked Neves.

The former FC Porto star has a £50,000-a-week contract (Spotrac) at Molineux until 2024, according to the club’s general manager of football operations Matt Wild (Express & Star).

Wolves must demand more

Arsenal reportedly wanting Neves is interesting.

The Gunners are a club that Wolves have the potential to be finishing above in the Premier League table right now.

Selling Neves to them would strengthen them, so it’s important he goes for a huge fee if Wolves are to contemplate a sale.

Surely the club should be trying to secure a fee similar to what Liverpool negotiated for Diogo Jota (£45 million all in, BBC Sport).

Ideally, Wolves would sell abroad before entertaining interest from a team like Arsenal.
