Ruben Neves replies to question about future amid Liverpool FC speculation
The Liverpool FC target commits his future to Wolves
Ruben Neves has committed his future to Championship winner Wolves despite speculation linking the midfielder with a move to Liverpool FC.
The Portuguese midfielder scored one goal and made six assists in 42 games in the Championship to help Wolves secure promotion to the Premier League.
The 21-year-old was widely considered to be Wolves’ best player after his move to the Championship side from Champions League outfit FC Porto in a £16m deal last summer.
Neves has unsurprisingly attracted some interest from the Premier League given his outstanding performances throughout the 2017-18 season.
Liverpool FC have been linked with a potential swoop to sign the Portuguese talent in the 2018 summer transfer window.
The Reds are light on midfield options following Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s serious knee injury during Liverpool FC’s 5-2 win over AS Roma in the Champions League semi-final.
Germany international Emre Can has been linked with a potential switch to Serie A champions Juventus at the end of the season when his current Liverpool FC deal expires.
Speaking to The Guardian about his future at Wolves, Liverpool FC target Neves said:
“I came here to help the club and the club has helped me as well.
“I think we achieved all our goals, as an individual and as a team. It is normal as big clubs see our work, not just me but all the boys, but I am really happy here. I want to stay and I want to enjoy the Premier League with this fantastic club.”
Liverpool FC will take on La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final later this month.
