Liverpool have been given a major boost as a potential midfield target is keen to move onto pastures new.
The agent of Ruben Neves has told those interested in his client that the Portuguese star will be available in the summer.
As an alternative option for Bellingham, Liverpool are a long-term admirer of Neves and have been linked to him in the past.
And now, interestingly, the Wolves midfielder will be ending his time at Molineux in search of a new challenge, according to 90min.
Infamous agent Jorge Mendes has ‘made it clear’ to clubs that the 26-year-old can leave Wolves come the end of this campaign.
Liverpool will have some competition if they wish to pursue a deal, with Newcastle, Tottenham, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid all named as potential suitors.
The report by 90min also suggests that Wolves’ higher-ups are working on a fresh contract for the midfield maestro, but an extension seems highly unlikely.
It seems that Neves has come to his senses and finally made the decision to move up from Wolves – a decision that should have been made a long, long time ago.
He may not be as exciting as a Bellingham or a Mount, but his Premier League credentials are there, and he has shown his worth on the big stage.
If the Reds can get him for a decent price, it would make sense to bolster their midfield options going into the next campaign.
