Ruben Neves, the talented Portuguese midfielder currently plying his trade for Wolverhampton Wanderers, has been a subject of interest for Arsenal in the past. However, he hasn’t been their top priority target. Nonetheless, the Gunners might find an opportunity to secure his services during this summer transfer window.

Neves has garnered significant attention in the market as he prepares to part ways with Wolves. Although his preferred destination was initially reported to be Barcelona, complications have arisen due to the financial constraints faced by the Catalan club.

For Barcelona to accommodate Neves, they need to create room within their budget. Consequently, Neves’ agent, Jorge Mendes, has been actively exploring alternative options for his client.

According to a report from The Sun, Mendes has offered Neves to Arsenal and other clubs, considering Barcelona’s current struggles. Neves himself is reportedly eager to depart from Wolves, and Mendes believes that a move to Barcelona is unlikely at this stage.

While Arsenal may not have been Neves’ initial preferred destination, the opportunity to sign him could arise if Barcelona’s pursuit falters and the financial conditions align favorably for the Gunners.

Acquiring Neves would be a significant addition to their midfield ranks and would make a positive impact on the team. Having spent a substantial portion of his career in England, Neves would require minimal time to adapt to the rigors of the Premier League, should he join Arsenal. However, his acquisition won’t come without a substantial price tag, meaning the Gunners would have to be willing to invest significantly.
