Arsenal’s interest in 26yo tested as Wolves make final contract offer

Ruben Neves has been on the radar of both Arsenal and Manchester United for some time, with his impressive performances in the Premier League garnering attention from top clubs.

However, recent reports suggest that Neves may be more open to signing a new contract with Wolves, provided they maintain their top-flight status.

Under the management of Julen Lopetegui, Wolves currently sit 13th in the Premier League table, only four points clear of the relegation zone.

With their Premier League status still uncertain, the club’s ability to secure Neves’ long-term future may be contingent on their survival.

Arsenal’s interest in Neves dates back through previous transfer windows, but the Gunners’ current squad boasts a strong lineup, potentially making a move for Neves less urgent.

Manchester United, on the other hand, have come close to signing the midfielder twice in the past and consider adding another midfielder a priority in the upcoming transfer window.

Despite the competition, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta may still see Neves as an attractive target to strengthen the midfield, especially considering the player’s experience in the Premier League and his proven ability to contribute with goals and assists.

Neves has scored five goals this season and is valued at around £40 million.

It’s not just Premier League clubs showing interest in Neves; Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have also kept an eye on his performances. Wolves will have their work cut out for them if they hope to retain their captain and fend off interest from top European clubs.

Wolves are set to make their final contract offer to Neves in the coming weeks, with the outcome likely to have a significant impact on the midfielder’s future.

As Arsenal and other interested clubs continue to monitor the situation, the race for Ruben Neves could heat up in the lead-up to the summer transfer window.
