The rumour mill is going to churn out quite a few different possibilities for Arsenal Football Club throughout the summer transfer window, as is the nature of the beast.
Still, it’s always interesting when a few names pop up that you may not have been expecting, which you could argue is the case with Ruben Neves.
A parade of websites and papers have linked the Portuguese midfielder with an exit from Molineux this season as Wolverhampton Wanderers prepare to let go of a man who has been instrumental to their success in recent years.
While Manchester United and Barcelona may be leading the charge to sign the 25-year-old, it’s worth noting that the Gunners are also believed to be heavily in the mix.
The likes of Partey and Xhaka are always going to be in the running for a place in the starting XI but if we could say one thing to Mikel Arteta, it would be this: put everything you’ve got into signing this man.
Neves is one of the most well-rounded midfielders on the face of the planet and we aren’t exaggerating when saying he could completely transform this team in every way imaginable.
There are era-defining signings and in our view, this would be one of them.
Can you picture Arsenal securing the signing of Ruben Neves?
