Wolves: Journalist drops Ruben Neves transfer claim

Now that the 2022 January transfer window has opened, it’s likely to see a number of Premier League teams make some changes to their squad in an effort to end the current season as strongly as possible.

In terms of Wolves and what business could happen at Molineux this month, journalist Pete O’Rourke has dropped a claim that should have a lot of Old Gold fans thrilled.

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, O’Rourke had this to say about the possibility of Wolves selling midfielder Ruben Neves in January.

He said: “I don’t think Wolves would consider selling him but maybe in the summer, there might be more speculation with regards to Ruben Neves.”

Taking into account how the Portuguese international was linked with a move away from Wolves during the previous summer transfer window with fellow Premier League clubs Manchester United and Arsenal reportedly interested in him, it’s understandable why there may be some speculation over Neves’ future as a Molineux player.

However, this claim from O’Rourke that the Midlands club would not be open to selling the 24-year-old should be reassuring for a lot of Wolves fans and put to bed any speculation about his immediate future for the time being.

Since joining Wolves back in the 2017 summer transfer window from FC Porto, the midfielder has gone on to make a total of 194 appearances for the Old Gold across all competitions, firmly cementing himself as an important figure for the team as well as scoring 21 goals and providing 11 assists along the way, prior to tonight’s Premier League clash against Manchester United.

Should Wolves offer Ruben Neves a new deal?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In addition to this claim, the fact that the Portugal international himself has recently shared his love for the club and aspirations to play in the Champions League with Wolves should be music to the ears of a lot of fans at Molineux.

Even though his current contract at Wolves isn’t set to expire until the summer of 2024, it could be worth the hierarchy at the club to offer Neves a new deal, possibly even before the next summer window to see if he would be willing to pledge his future to the club and help get them to the Champions League and out of the hands of any other club that may want to sign him.
