Reds, Blues interested in Neves

Premier League duo Liverpool and Chelsea have made contact with super agent Jorge Mendes over a potential move for Porto midfielder Ruben Neves.

Neves, who graduated from his side's youth academy in 2014, is often likened to Barcelona anchorman Sergio Busquets.

Italian outlet Calciomercato claims that the English pair have held discussions with Mendes regarding the player's situation.

However, they will face stiff competition from Italian champions Juventus, who are on the search for Paul Pogba's replacement.

The Old Lady currently have a void in their midfield after Pogba returned to Manchester United on a world-record deal in the summer.

Despite being just 19, Neves has amassed over 75 outings for the Dragons in all competitions. He is also a full international with Portugal with his debut coming against Russia in November last year.
