Arsenal to bid for Neves
Football Transfer Centre

Arsenal will attempt to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves when the transfer window reopens.

The Gunners were determined to sign a new midfielder before the summer transfer deadline, but failed to do so.

Aston Villa's Douglas Luiz was the prime target on deadline day, but the Villans rejected their £25 million bid.

The Gunners have been fancied to return for him in January, but The Mirror claim that Neves is also on their radar.

The Portuguese's current deal with Wolves expires in the summer of 2024, and he has yet to negotiate a possible renewal.

Arsenal are prepared to test Wolves' resolve with a £40m bid and it remains to be seen whether the offer will be sufficient.

The London giants have performed above expectations in the early part of the season, and are currently top of the league.

Mikel Arteta will want to strengthen his squad further at the turn of the year to ensure that the club finish in the top four at least.
