Wolves confident of keeping Ruben Neves

Adama Traore’s Wolves future has rumbled on throughout the January transfer window.

But there has not been as much discussion around Ruben Neves, despite the fact the pair were talked about in the summer as players who could leave to fund investment in the squad.

Neves has been one of Wolves’ players of the season – if not the best one – and continued that form with a goal at Brentford last time out.

But the Sun are reporting that does not mean that Neves is expected to leave before the end of the January window.

That is despite reported interest from Arsenal and Manchester United, who both need to strengthen their midfield.

The report says it would take an extraordinary offer to prise Neves away from Molineux before the end of the month.

The report suggests that is somewhere around £45 million, although David Edwards feels that Neves would be a bargain at double that.

He recently said that Neves is worth £100 million on current form and asked if there is a better midfielder in the Premier League right now.

The club need to keep Neves at all costs, and the report says that Wolves’ bid for European competition means that Neves could stay beyond the summer.
