Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is reportedly insisting on the club sealing the transfer of Al Hilal midfielder Ruben Neves in this January’s transfer window.
The Portugal international shone during his time in the Premier League with Wolves, and it would be intriguing to see what he could do at a title-challenging side like Arsenal after a surprise spell in Saudi Arabia.
Neves is surely good enough to make an impact for a team like Arsenal, and Sport claim Arteta has personally made it clear how keen he is on a deal for the 26-year-old.
The Spanish tactician has been given a fine squad to work with at Arsenal, with big signings like Declan Rice and Kai Havertz delivered in recent times, though it seems he still wants more talent to bolster his squad.
Thomas Partey’s injury issues could mean it’s worth bringing in someone like Neves to provide more depth, so it will be interesting to see how this all pans out.
After spending a lot in the summer, it could be that players like Partey would have to be sold first before a signing like Neves can come in.
