Liverpool are interested in signing Ruben Neves from Premier League rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer transfer window, according to talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook. The well-known and well-respected journalist has added that Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes is actively trying to bring his Portugal international told Old Trafford.
Crook has further stated that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants to sign Neves as well, with Wolves looking for £35 million as transfer fee for the 24-year-old.
The journalist said on talkSPORT: “This is another player Mikel Arteta has been monitoring closely. But I think the trail seems to have gone cold there when it comes to Neves and Arsenal.
“Wolves have their price-tag, £35 million. They are willing to do business to generate funds for their new manager. Liverpool were mentioned to me this morning.
“And there is definite interest from Manchester United as well. What’s interesting here is Neves is a Portuguese teammate of Bruno Fernandes and he is actively trying to push Neves towards Old Trafford.”
Neves made 31 starts and five substitute appearances in the Premier League for Wolves last season, scoring five goals and providing one assist in the process.
