Fabrizio Romano predicts Arsenal to be priced out of midfielder pursuit

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that the asking price for Wolves’ Ruben Neves is likely to price Arsenal out of a move this summer.

The Gunners are expected to be in the hunt to sign a new option in midfield this summer, whilst strengthening other key areas in the team also, and one option could be Neves.

The Portuguese midfielder joined Wolves to play alongside a number of his compatriots and has continually impressed since making the switch to England.

Both Arsenal and Manchester United are believed to be eyeing his potential signing this summer, but Fabrizio Romano has told CaughtOffside that he believes our valuation of him and Wolves’ are not on a par, which will likely see us miss out on his signature.

While much of our budget is expected to be spent on our attack, Nketiah’s recent form could well make us a saving, and I don’t see why we wouldn’t consider Neves as one who could improve our starting line-up?

Do you believe that we should be willing to pay a sizeable fee to sign Neves? Could he be the ideal option for our midfield?

  1. I like Neves , but never did i think he would be in a top team’s midfield.
    With the mad money there talking about , they can keep him for me.

  2. Priced out !
    Any club paying more than 30 million for him must have more money than sense and that includes us .

  3. Any scouting director willing to spend over 35M on a defensive midfielder needs a mental evaluation. A dime a dozen, as far as I’m concerned. Better to spend our money on an attacking midfielder to add more goals to our game. Neves is not that player.

  4. Not a big fan of his to be honest,too much unwarranted hype about this player.Wolves coach said that he was a 100M player,no way José!

  5. Also,there is a difference between being priced out and not being willing to pay the fee mentioned.

  6. For my money Neves is a decent player, no more than that. Not a special player at alland any rumours of Wolves being able to tout him for ludicrous money like “£70mill” is for the birds only.
    In reality land where I live and so does MA, no manager pays silly money like that for a merely decent but not special player. It won’t happen and that’s the bottom line, which is what matters.

  7. The fee rumored is likely designed to price out any potential buyers. Good player, but not great. Worldies go for the rumored sum, Neves is not in that class.

    He’s slow, predictable, and outclassed by Bissouma in my opinion.

    Easy pass for me, plenty of other option better suited for us.

  8. Paying £70 mil for Neves is not far fetched, Manchester United paid more for Maguire, in my opinion Ruben he is more valuable

  9. In skills, Neves seems to be the best in his position but he’s slow and can’t match Liverpool,man city or even Chelsea , so need someone better, we can’t have 2 light weights in our midfield (Oedegaard and Neves),

    I’ve read we up for a Pepe swap with Sevilla’s Lucas Ocampus , now that’s a midfielder that’s great, has speed, skills and strength,

    I just hope Arteta doesn’t buy any more English players, they ain’t that technical, we could promote from the U23, which I think would save up cost .

  10. he’s staying at Wolves because he is unavailable. There isn’t a shortage of midfield talent anyways so best to just move on. A team like United will pay that silly amount.
