Arsenal have reportedly made an approach for £34million-rated Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves after the departures of Dani Ceballos and Martin Odegaard.
According to the Sunday Times, Gunners manager Mikel Arteta is keen on bolstering his midfield with the signing of Neves, although the club retains interest in Brighton’s Yves Bissouma, who has asked to leave the Seagulls.
Neves, 24, signed for then-Championship Wolves in July 2017 for around £15m, and in the intervening four seasons has made 176 appearances in all competitions, scoring 20 goals.
He may not be the only Wolves star to leave this summer, with the Midlands side understood to have made Neves and wingers Pedro Neto and Adama Traore available for transfer to fund new manager Bruno Lage’s summer spending.
Wolves general manager of football operations Matt Wild claimed in May that Neves‘ current contract expires in summer 2024, despite reports suggesting otherwise, potentially adding to his transfer value.
Yes, he’s still got another three years on his contract.
