Tottenham have entered the chase for Ruben Neves, with the Wolves midfielder ready for a new challenge in the summer.

According to 90min, Tottenham are ready to rival Liverpool and Barcelona to sign Ruben Neves. The 26-year-old Portuguese international is ready to quit Wolves in the summer for a bigger challenge to further his career.

Ruben Neves made the unusual decision to leave FC Porto and Champions League football to play for Championship side Wolves. The decision has paid off for the Midlands club, with the 26-year-old Portuguese international helping them gain promotion and establish themselves as a Premier League team.

Neves was eager to accept a new challenge, but he has been unable to leave Wolves for various reasons. Chief among those was their asking price for the midfielder, which clubs like Arsenal and Liverpool have shown no interest in paying.

Neves could get his big move in the summer window as he enters the final year of his deal. Liverpool may have wanted him in January. But knowing he could become available at a lower price in the next window, a move could materialise.

Barcelona were also offered the midfielder. But even with Neves entering the final year of his contract, the Catalans may face a financial challenge in signing him. Hence, a move within the Premier League would make sense unless Real Madrid come in with interest.

While Wolves are eager to offer him a new deal, Neves could entertain Premier League offers with Liverpool one of the clubs keen. Jurgen Klopp has admired the 26-year-old Portuguese international for some time and could bring him to shore up his troubled midfield.

Meanwhile, Tottenham have entered the chase for Neves, with the north Londoners eyeing up a key midfield addition. Summer signing Yves Bissouma has not been performing well, while Rodrigo Bentancur is a long-term absentee.

Neves would instantly improve the team, and he will get to play European football. However, if the 26-year-old Portuguese international arrives, it could spell the end for one of Tottenham’s current midfielders, including Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

Tottenham and other clubs could queue up to sign Neves in the next window. The 26-year-old will likely take his time before deciding on his next move, as he seems destined to depart Wolves at all costs in the summer.
