Ruben Neves will not be short of potential buyers again this summer if speculative rumors about the future of the Portuguese star are true.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers player has been closely associated with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal since the end of the 2020/2021 Premier League season.
North Londoners are looking to reshape a midfield in which the status of Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka is on hold.
But according to report, the Gunners aren’t the only ones seeing Ruben, who has been with Wolves for four years.
They say Manchester United, who have been mentioned in previous transfer windows, remain “very interested” and that Red Devils’ Bruno Fernandes has come out in favor of his international team-mate.
West Ham United’s Declan Rice is said to be their favorite target, but the London side do not appear to have any plans to part ways with their crown jewel.
It would also have cost him a lot of money, with the off-roader supposedly costing between £35-40million.
Neves was a crucial player for his team last season, starting 31 top-level games and missing just two, playing more minutes than all-rounder Leander Dendoncker and old man Joao Moutinho.
The same story goes that Wolves may have to sell Ruben and Adama Traore to fund this summer’s draft, a troubling development for their fans if that’s true.
