Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs unlikely to pay £100m for Ruben Neves

Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs unlikely to pay £100m for Ruben Neves -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur will reportedly not consider paying £100m for Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves this summer, according to club insider John Wenham.

The Lowdown: Plenty of interest

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move away from Molineux pretty much all season, with the Lilywhites said to be among several clubs interested in his services, alongside Manchester United and Arsenal.

However, it was claimed earlier this week that the 26-cap Portugal international would prefer to join Barcelona rather than another Premier League club, with it being his dream to one day play at Camp Nou.

As a result, Wenham believes that it would take an extortionate sum of money to lure Neves away from the Midlands at the end of the current campaign.

The Latest: Neves could cost £100m

When asked about Spurs potentially making a move for the Portuguese talent, Wenham told Football Insider:

“He’s a very good player but I see Wolves have slapped a £100million price tag on him. That’s the fee that I have seen mentioned and there is no way we would pay that.

“It’s up to Wolves to set that price tag and they can do that. It’s about what he is worth to Wolves. I can’t see us getting him as long as that price tag stands. We are well stocked in midfield as well.

“If that price tag was to come down and he was an achievable player then we would have to see. But I don’t think anyone signs him for £100million.”

The Verdict: Neves move to Spurs unlikely

Once hailed an “outstanding” player by Wolves journalist Tim Spiers, there’s no doubt that the £36m-rated talisman has been one of the standout midfielders in the Premier League over the last few years, having made a total of 36 goal contributions since joining Bruno Lage’s side back in 2017.

Despite that impressive output, Tottenham are already pretty well stocked in the middle of the park, especially following the January arrival of Dejan Kulusevski. The Swedish youngster has made a hugely impressive start to life under Antonio Conte in north London, recording three goals and eight assists in just 17 appearances to date, as per Transfermarkt.

Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

As the Italian looks to rebuild his squad ahead of the start of next term, it seems highly unlikely that he will go out and spend £100m on one player when he needs the transfer funds available to him to bring in new signings all over the pitch. Therefore, it wouldn’t come as any surprise to see Neves make the switch to Barcelona instead in the coming months to fulfil his lifelong dream.
