Wolverhampton Wanderers have made a £45m bid for midfielder Ruben Neves in the context of them receiving interest from Arsenal.
According to The Telegraph, Wolves coach Julen Lopetegui is ready to let the captain of the team leave. The reason is that this player is ambitious to play in the Champions League. Therefore, it is difficult for Wolves to keep Neves after this season ends.
In addition to Arsenal, Barcelona are also very interested in this midfielder. Arsenal have been linked with Neves for some time as they look to strengthen the midfield. On the contrary, Barcelona is about to make an official offer.
Unsurprisingly, Wolves made a £45m bid for Neves. He is one of the most prominent players in the Premier League.
The 26-year-old’s contract expires in the summer of 2024. If Neves is not sold this summer, Wolves could face the prospect of losing him for nothing.
Arsenal will be in the Champions League for the first time since 2016 so definitely need quality in depth. At that time, Neves was a deal worth investing in.
