Wolves won’t sell Neves despite interest from Arsenal and City

Arsenal are among clubs keen on Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves, according to the Sunday Telegraph.

The newspaper believe the Gunners, Manchester City and Juventus are keen on Neves but that he is not for sale.

Wolves’ board are said to have held a meeting and decided that the Portugal international, 21, is not for sale under any circumstances and that any bids for him will be rejected regardless of the amount of money on offer.

Midfielder Neves has impressed since his move to Molineux, prompting speculation that a top Premier League club could move for him.

Neves only signed a five-year contract in July and his high-profile agent Jorge Mendes reportedly believes he should stay.

The player himself has also played down reports of interest from other clubs.

He recently told the Telegraph: “Honestly, I don’t look to the future. I am committed here with Wolverhampton and I want to help the club achieve very good things.

“We have this year to work and to put Wolves where it deserves. It is good to have aspirations but we have to be real. We are playing with the best players in the world.

“For many players it is the first year in the Premier League, so we have to be calm. We have to think game by game and do everything that we can to try to put Wolves as high as we can.”
