Wolves: Journalist backs Ruben Neves to leave Wanderers

Wolves: Journalist backs Ruben Neves to leave Wanderers -Premier League

Wolves will find it difficult to keep hold of key midfielder Ruben Neves at the end of the season, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The Lowdown: Neves linked with Wolves exit

The 24-year-old has been superb for Wanderers this season, catching the eye with his influential performances in the middle of the park.

Neves has scored three times and registered one assist in 24 Premier League appearances, also shining off the ball by averaging 2.3 tackles per game as he dominates the midfield and dictates the tempo of the match.

The Portuguese star has been linked with a move away from Molineux, however, as he may be eyeing a move to a team in the top four if Wolves do not pull off their remarkable push for Champions League football.

Will Wolves qualify for the Champions League this season?

The Latest: Journalist makes worrying claim

Speaking to Give Me Sport, O’Rourke claimed Neves could well leave Wolves this summer:

“Wolves won’t want to hear this because they would love to keep Ruben Neves, but I think this summer, it could be a hard battle to keep hold of Neves.”

The Verdict: Potential big blow

Neves is a hugely influential player, possessing the ability to boss big matches, so the thought of losing him is a worrying one for Wolves supporters.

The Portugal international is a player with lofty ambitions, however, and with Bruno Lage’s side now looking unlikely to finish in the top-four this season, a bid from a Champions League-playing club could turn his head.

The hope is that Neves remains loyal and stays put for years to come, but it would be hard to begrudge him a move if a European giant came calling.
