Many Wolves fans have been flocking to a transfer update involving Ruben Neves.
As per The Times, Arsenal have begun work on a deal to try and sign the former FC Porto midfielder in the summer window. He has been made available for sale in order to try and raise some funds for the incoming Bruno Lage to spend in the market.
Neves has been a key player for the Midlands club over the past few seasons, from being part of the squad which won promotion to the Premier League in 2018 and then being a mainstay in the team ever since.
The Portugal international averaged 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 campaign (WhoScored), showing just how important he is to the heart of their midfield.
Is Neves the best midfielder at Wolves?
It is not a surprise that many Wolves fans do not want him to leave, especially to go to a rival Premier League club.
Wolves fans react to Neves transfer update
These Wolves supporters flocked to the transfer update as it was shared on Twitter, with one describing Neves’ potential departure as a ‘terrible idea’:
“Don’t need this first thing on a Sunday”
“It’s a weird one because he deserves so much better than being at a club run the way we are, but selling Ruben would be the final straw.”
