Arsenal have been linked with a number of midfield talents as potential replacements for Granit Xhaka who looks open to depart this summer.
Yves Bissouma of Brighton seems to be one of the main targets, however an alternative is now seen as Wolves star Ruben Neves.
According to the Sunday Times and Duncan Castles, Arsenal have started proceedings in making their move on Neves this summer. The Gunners are reportedly hopeful that a deal can be done around the £34 million mark. Neves is reportedly one of a number of Wolves players to have been made available for transfer this summer.
Overall, I am not convinced with this transfer. In my opinion, Yves Bissouma would be a far better player for us. Neves is definitely decent, but if Wolves are making him available for transfer, why would he be good enough for us. If Brighton want £40 million for Bissouma, it would surely be worth paying that little bit extra to just get that deal done.
Stylistically, I would actually argue Neves and Xhaka are very similar. If Neves is the signing we want to partner Partey, we may as well just keep the Swiss captain.
What do you think though Gooners, would you rather Bissouma or Neves?
