Liverpool urged to sign Portuguese superstar

Liverpool might have endured disappointment in the Premier League and they must strengthen if they desire to make the deficit to Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Former Liverpool Midfielder, Stan Collymore, believes that Liverpool should look at Ruben Neves. The Portuguese joined Wolverhampton Wanderers from Porto and has since been a revelation. The two seasons he has been in England, Wolves won the Championship and finished 7th in the Premier League. Rated around €50 to 70million, the youngster could be on the move this summer to pastures new.

Ruben Neves to Liverpool?

“If you’re champions of Europe, that in itself is a huge catch,” Collymore told Stadium Astro. “Players from around Europe will have seen the atmosphere this year and the type of football. One who will be looking is Ruben Neves.”

“He’s been on the radar of several clubs, a playmaker. He doesn’t score as many goals as he should but scores worldies. Neves is the kind of guy you’d get on the ball in the final third and he has the vision of David Silva.”

Ruben Neves has seemingly suggested that he will be at Wolverhampton Wanderers next season on the club’s official website. “It’s been unbelievable. I think the best atmosphere that I’ve played in England, at Molineux,” he said.“It’s really difficult to play there, so thank you for the support, thank you all. I can’t wait for us again next season to do things well.”

His manager Nuno Espirito Santo has revealed that the former Porto is his own harshest critic and hailed the youngster as a perfectionist.“Ruben, since he was in Porto, had these characteristics,” Nuno told the Express and Star.

“He’s a good kicker of the ball, and he has to work – and he does. A lot of time he spends on the training pitch, of course. And it’s not only this season. We’ll try for it to not only be him, but it’s something he really works on. Credit to him.”

Author’s Take

As a tempo-setter, there are few better than Ruben Neves. The Portuguese has displayed the ability to pick out team-mates in dangerous positions from deep in midfield. But he is not shying away from the dirty work as well, racking up 2 tackles and interceptions per game. Considering the factors and the impressive numbers, Liverpool might have an eyeball or two on the Wolves man this summer.
