'Ruben Neves for £35 million!' - Edu reveals his transfer mission to complete Arsenal's dream midfield
Arsenal fans have reacted to rumors that fellow Premier League club Wolves could sell Ruben Neves when the transfer window opens next month.
Arsenal supporters are on the lookout for a possible offer for Ruben Neves.
The Gunners are expected to be busy this summer, with manager Mikel Arteta and technical director Eduon on the lookout for recruits in up to five roles as they aim to overhaul a squad that will not compete in European competition next season, according to JoriPress.
The signing of a central midfielder is high on their priority list, with Dani Ceballos returning to Real Madrid after a two-year loan spell, and the futures of Joe Willock, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira, Mohamed Elneny, and Granit Xhaka all in doubt.
Brighton's Yves Bissouma and Sheffield United's Sander Berge are two names they've looked at.
However, some Arsenal supporters believe Ruben Neves should be added to the shortlist, as the Athletic reports that Wolves are ready to sell the midfielder this summer.
Furthermore, the article claims that when the transfer window reopens next month, the Portugal international, who has only two years left on his deal at Molineux, will be eligible for about £35 million.
Arsenal has made no suggestion that they are interested in signing Neves, but he may be the ideal midfield partner for Thomas Partey next season.
In addition, he could be a less expensive choice than Bissouma and Berge.
According to some Arsenal fans' reactions on social media, they would be delighted if the club signed Neves.
Take a look at what people are saying about it on Twitter...

@AFCJJ_ tweeted: "In fact, I'd take him. Xhaka's replacement."
"An Upgrade compared to Xhaka, so yeah," said @gooner serbian.
"He will be the ideal substitute for Xhaka in the midfield pivot," Victory said.
