Arsenal supporters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are extremely excited at the news coming in from Metro (via BuzzSport) – with the publication suggesting that the Gunners are in talks with Porto to secure the signing of central midfielder Ruben Neves.
The midfielder has a £29 million release clause, and it seems that Arsene Wenger has earmarked the gifted Portuguese star as the man to help anchor the Arsenal midfield.
The Gooners here inside the Transfer Tavern have been moaning non-stop all week about the abundance of injuries the club has at the moment, however this news has certainly perked them up now!
Our landlord feels that at the age of just 18, Neves is going to become one of the world’s best central midfielders in the years to come, as he is ridiculously composed on the ball, and already seems to have matured as a player.
Our resident Arsenal fans over by the bar feel that Wenger should do all in his power to lure Ruben Neves to Arsenal in January, as it is almost certain that he is going to become a world star in the seasons to come.
Gunners fans….. What do you make of this news? Just how good is Ruben Neves? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
