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 respected journalist added that Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes is actively looking to bring his Portuguese international to Old Trafford.
Crook further said Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta also wants to sign Neves, with the Wolves seeking £ 35m as a transfer fee for the 24-year-old.
The reporter said on talk SPORT: “This is another player that Mikel Arteta has closely followed. But I think the track seems to have cooled down there when it comes to Neves and Arsenal.
“Wolves have their own price tag, £ 35 million. They are willing to do business to generate funds for their new manager. Liverpool was mentioned to me this morning.
“And there is also an interest decided by Manchester United. The interesting thing here is that Neves is a Portuguese teammate of Bruno Fernandes and he is actively trying to push Neves towards Old Trafford ”.
Neves did 31 starts and five Premier League substitute appearances for Wolves last season, scoring five goals and providing an assist in the process.
