Lots of Wolves fans have been flocking to a transfer update on Ruben Neves.
As per Italian football journalist and transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, the Portugal international is currently the ‘favourite’ midfielder to join Arsenal if Granit Xhaka leaves for AS Roma, as there are ‘difficulties’ for them in trying to sign Manuel Locatelli, who would rather wait until Juventus make a move.
Neves has been a key player for the Midlands club ever since their promotion to the Premier League in 2018, averaging more tackles (2.4), interceptions (1.8), shots (1.9), passes (54.9) and long balls (5.3) per game in the top flight than both Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho in the 2020/21 season (WhoScored).
Is Neves the best midfielder at Wolves?
At just 24 years of age, he could still have plenty to offer at Molineux, and Wolves supporters might certainly question selling him to a direct rival after losing Diogo Jota and Matt Doherty to Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur respectively last year.
Wolves fans on Neves transfer update
These Wolves fans flocked to the exit rumour as it was shared on Twitter:
“Says it all when a midtable team like Arsenal who can’t get who they want can just come along and cherry pick us. In Fosun and Shi we trust though”
“It’s inevitable he’s going but I’m still not prepared for the day Neves is no longer a Wolves player”
“From what’s gone on so far. I think we need to keep Neves and try to build a team around him. He could be the key is everything that might be good next season. Under Bruno we hopefully will see the player again from his first few seasons scoring amazing goals”
“We need money to help FFP but I hope we keep him”
