“Who wouldn’t want…?” Arsenal’s long-term target flirts with a Spanish club

Arsenal has been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Ruben Neves after the midfielder issued a come-and-get-me plea to Barcelona.

Neves has been one of the finest midfielders in the Premier League since he helped Wolves to gain promotion to the competition.

He has caught the attention of Arsenal and other EPL sides for much of his time at the Midlands club and he could move at the end of this season.

He was considered a serious Gunners target in the last transfer window, but the move never materialised. Instead, he remained at Molineux.

This could be his last season with them, but Arsenal is facing competition from Barca for his signature and he seems to favour a move to the Spanish side.

Asked about the potential transfer recently, Neves said via The Sun:

“Who wouldn’t want to play for Barcelona?

“If you ask in general, all the players want to play for Barca, one of the best clubs in the world. It’s a privilege for me to be associated with this team.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Neves is one of the finest EPL midfielders, so it is not surprising that Barca will want to sign him.

If he is high on our target list, we must now work hard to convince him to choose us over a move to the Spanish side.

  1. OT, watching Everton/CP and ONANA should of
    been toward the top of AFC’s shopping list this
    summer. He bossed the first half and is already
    on a different level than Sambi. Viera was a
    shrewd purchase for the future and I’m confident
    the young Portuguese will come good but Onana
    IS the perfect missing ingredient in midfield and
    Unfortunately the one that got away.

    WTS I would take Neves in a heartbeat

  2. He may fancy a Barca move but they are already well stacked in midfield and given their financial problems I highly doubt they will be after him. I also don’t think it would take much to convince him to join us, being the current league leaders and Wolves struggling. Believe he only has 18 months left on his current deal so maybe we could get him for around £35M-£40M.

  3. Ruben Neves is better than , Douglass Luiz, Tielemans, and a host of midfielders whoom we are rumored to link with, he’s a ready made fit to Arsenal.

    He is premier league battle hardened and now a bold bid to land him in January would hardly suprises even the least informed gooners.
