Arsenal in the hunt to sign No.8 Premier League midfielder

Arsenal and Wolves have reportedly had contact over a possible transfer deal for Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves. Portugal international is seemingly free to leave Molineux for the right offer this summer, with Gunners already working on striking a deal for him.

This is similar to what has already been reported, while another previous report suggested Ruben could leave for nearly £35m this summer. This could be great business by Arsenal if they pull it off, with Portugal international looking ideal to come in and give them a much-needed upgrade on their current midfield options.

Granit Xhaka has never really looked good enough for a club of Gunners size, while Dani Ceballos also struggled to impress in his two years on loan at the London club.

The Gunners would surely benefit from having Ruben pulling the strings in midfield, with the ex-Porto midfielder a fine passer of the ball and a player capable of some great long-range goals either from open play or set pieces.

Gunners have struggled under the Spanish manager, and much of that has been down to their somewhat lacklustre attacking play, with recent signings like Willian and Nicolas Pepe not really offering enough in that department.
