'£50m plus', 'don't': Some fans shocked as Arsenal reportedly in talks over Carrick-like player

Arsenal are reportedly in talks over Ruben Neves ahead of a potential move, and some Wolves fans aren’t happy in the slightest.

Gianluca Di Marzio claimed earlier this week that Neves is the Gunners’ first choice to replace Granit Xhaka.

And now, Portuguese outlet Record has reported that Arsenal and Wolves are “already” in discussions over Neves.

Neves joined Wolves from Porto in 2017 and helped the club to promotion from the Championship into the Premier League.

He has clocked up 176 appearances in old gold, registering 20 goals and 10 assists.

Neves is a superb passer of the ball, and in May 2019, 90Min noted his similarities with some legendary midfielders.

“He draws comparisons with the likes of Xabi Alonso, Paul Scholes, and Andrea Pirlo – the latter of which Neves has confessed to modelling himself after,” they wrote.

People have also made comparisons between Neves and the likes of Scholes, plus fellow Manchester United icon Michael Carrick.

The Telegraph reported in June that Wolves want at least £40million for Neves.

However, some fans reckon their club should aim for at least £50million, while others wouldn’t sell at all.
