Spanish giant looking to steal Premier League midfielder from under Arsenal’s noses

Barcelona is looking to steal a march on Arsenal in the race for Ruben Neves.

The Portuguese midfielder is on the Gunners’ shopping list, and the they remain keen to make him one of their summer signings.

His time at Wolves will likely end by the start of next season as several clubs circle the midfielder.

Arsenal had been confident that they will add him to their squad, but it seems they might miss out if they don’t act fast.

Spanish newspaper, Sport claims Barca’s interest in his signature is serious and they have recently stepped up their pursuit.

They claim the manager of the Catalan side, Xavi Hernandez, has already spoken to the former FC Porto man to inform him of his intention to use him in his system.

The former midfielder hopes he has convinced the Portugal international to wait and sign for them despite interest from Arsenal.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Barca has a well-publicised financial problem, and this should make it hard for them to sign players.

We are in better financial health and should get as many of our targets as possible.

But we must act fast and finish our business before other clubs begin to make important moves in the market.

  1. Perisic arriving at Tottenham: ” My English is not good but what is a trophy room and why is it empty” ?

  2. I hate how Arsenal always get played with transfer fees… we get overcharged for most players yet get offered peanuts for our own.
    If we wanted Neves Wolves would be asking least £50 million for him. Barca will probably get him for £20-£30 million.
    Saliba, one of the best defenders in ligue 1, a French international and is only 20/21 yet if we sell him we will only be offered what we paid for him if we are lucky.

  3. I never bought into this whole Neves nonsesne rumour. Yes, a half decent player but no more than that and way overpriced AND overhyped.

    I am 99.9% certain he will not come to us and much doubt that he was ever seriously sought by MA.

  4. I have pressed this point several times….

    When we attack, we are overbalanced on the right side.

    Tommy plays the ball down the right.

    Ben White brings the ball out of defense down the right.

    Odegaard leans towards the right because that is where the ball is..

    Consequently, ESR, when he plays is starved, and Nellie often suffers from lack of passes to set him free.

    The problem is compounded when Tavares plays, since he just runs with the ball and doesn’t pass until he is in trouble.

    Things are better when Tierney plays, but we desperately need a left sided midfielder, preferably one who defends well to even up the balance.

    Both Neves and Tielemans are described as Central Midfielders, so I am not sure if they help this issue.

    I really think we need to bring in a true left sided midfielder in the summer to even up the shape!!!!

    1. I think this is part of the tactic, not entirely sure. But we overload the right, then switch play quickly and get Martinelli 1v1. Might be wrong here, but its a commonly used tactic
